Mary Murphy (born in Flushing, New York in 1959) is the weekend co-anchor of the PIX 11 News at Ten on WPIX-TV in New York City, and is a correspondent and substitute anchor for Kaity Tong on the station's weekday broadcasts.

While a student at Queens College in Flushing, New York, Mary interned in the WCBS-TV newsroom and after graduating Magna Cum Laude in 1981, she was hired by WPIX-TV (Channel 11) as a production assistant, working her way up the ladder to staff reporter. In 1986, WCBS-TV hired Mary as a general assignment reporter and later, as a breaking news correspondent, her coverage of the Joel Steinberg and John Gotti trials garnered two Emmy Award wins by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

In 1993, Murphy returned to WPIX-TV as a special correspondent, where she was assigned to major stories, with hosting duties on 11 News Close-up, plus anchor work.
