Sweeny Murti

sweeny Sweeny MurtiLike a few before him, Sweeny Murti has worked his way up the roster at WFAN…from intern in 1991, to being hired in 1993, to Yankees beat reporter today.

While an undergrad at Penn State, Murti interned at the FAN. After earning a degree in Communications, Sweeny was rehired by WFAN in 1993 where he worked as a producer. Then, after a one year stint at WIP in Philadelphia, Sweeny returned to WFAN as a 20-20 sports anchor in 1998. He became WFAN’s Yankees beat reporter in 2001.

In addition to his duties at WFAN, Murti has worked for the Yes Network, WCBS-TV Channel 2 New York and WIP Sportsradio in Philadelphia. He also traveled to Atlanta in 1996 and Sydney in 2000 to cover the Summer Olympics for Westwood One Radio.
