Chris Berman Signed a "Multi-Year" Extension at ESPN and Here are Videos to Celebrate the Occasion
Chris Berman is staying at ESPN. Apparently, he didn’t have the options he had in 2010, when the NFL Network made a move. From the press release:
"Six-time National Sportscaster of the Year Chris Berman, who joined ESPN in October 1979 – less than a month after the network launched – has signed a new multi-year extension to remain with ESPN. One of the preeminent sports commentators of his generation, Berman will continue as the leading voice and face of ESPN’s National Football League studio coverage as host of Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown and Monday Night Football halftime, NFL highlight segments on SportsCenter and the NFL Draft. He will also continue to host the Major League Baseball Home Run Derby and ESPN’s U.S. Open golf coverage."
And now, some classic Berman videos:
