Jeremy Murphy is the founder of 360bespoke, a media agency that provides public relations, content development, reputation management and crisis communications for clients in categories such as luxury, arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs. Previously, Murphy spent 14 years at CBS where he served many roles as a Vice President, most notably as a company spokesperson and Editor-In-Chief. In addition, he is a respected speech writer, having worked with shoe designer Steve Madden on his address to the Accessories Council; Elle magazine editor in chief Nina Garcia; media executive Dawn Ostroff (Spotify, Conde Nast, CW network) and artists like Usher, Dolly Parton, Indya Moore and Issa Rae.
At 360bespoke, which he launched in 2016, Murphy has achieved national media placements for his clients in Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Today, Robb Report, US Weekly, Vogue, People magazine, New York Post, WWD, Cigar Aficionado, Allure, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar UK, Morning Joe (NSNBC), Fox Business, Town & Country, New York magazine, Billboard, The New Yorker, Good Day New York, KTLA Los Angeles, WNBC-TV New York, Scripps, Yahoo Business, Sinclair/Full Measure, KGO San Francisco, WGN-TV Chicago, Gotham, and the Daily Front Row among many other outlets.
At CBS, Murphy oversaw all communications to media, including press releases, statements, announcements, executive biographies, as well as speeches for the company’s top leaders. He wrote remarks for CEO Leslie Moonves, CW president Dawn Ostroff, as well as executives in charge of all its divisions. Murphy also oversaw media relations for its local television, radio and out-of-home companies.
He gained industry recognition when he created and edited CBS’ glossy magazine Watch, which redefined the perception of custom publishing. As its editor-in-chief, he built a respected masthead that featured top editorial talents like world-famous photographers Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen von Unwerth, Art Streiber and Ruven Afanodor, as well as fashion authority Kate Betts (former editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Time Design & Style); Time magazine columnist Joel Stein; New York Times contributors Ben Widdicombe, Frank DeCaro and Stuart Elliot; and Allure senior editor Kristin Perrotta as contributors. Working with these creative forces, he infused the magazine’s pages with elegant and timeless features, including recreations of French Impressionist paintings at the celebrated Hotel Plaza Athénée Paris; homages to Christian Dior and Babe Paley; and a cover shoot with actress Julianna Margulies by Demarchelier at the Hotel du Cap in the Côte d’Azur. The strategy successfully transitioned Watch from a publication to a brand encompassing print, television, online, video and social media. The pivot to luxury editorial also helped attract labels such as Tom Ford, YSL, Giorgio Armani, Dior, Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino, Hugo Boss, Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton and Peninsula hotels as advertisers.
Before CBS, Murphy worked as a reporter at Mediaweek, where he covered the nation’s top 50 markets. He began as a feature writer with Knight Ridder newspapers.
In 2010, Murphy was inducted into the Florida Atlantic University Alumni Hall of Fame.
