Spanning an entire career, Murphy has done it all from competitive appearances on the children’s show “Winning Pins” and Channel 5’s “Candlepin Bowling” to hosting iconic shows such as NESN’s “Big Shot Bowling” with Bob Fouracre and “Candlepin Stars and Strikes” on WNDS with Doug Brown. Dan Murphy was inducted into the ICBA’s Hall of Fame in 1999 for Competitive Ability, and also received the President’s Cup in the 2014 induction ceremony. Similar to a Lifetime Achievement award, this honor immortalizes Murphy’s lifelong dedication to the sport of Candlepin bowling as a proprietor, competitor, instructor, and foremost proponent of the game.
