Chris Berman’s Wife, Kathy, Killed In Fatal Car Accident
Kathy Berman, the wife of ESPN personality Chris Berman, was one of two people killed in a two-car crash on Tuesday in Woodbury, Connecticut.
Kathy and Chris married just four years after he first joined ESPN back in 1979. Mrs. Berman, who worked as a teacher, was married to the longtime ESPN sportscaster for over 33 years.
“This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend,” ESPN president John Skipper said in a statement. “Chris is beloved by all his ESPN colleagues and for good reason: He has a huge heart and has given so much to so many over the years. We know how much his family means to him and all we can do at a moment like this is give him the love and support he will surely need at this hour. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris, Meredith, Doug and the entire family.”
Berman recently left ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, which he hosted for the network for 31 seasons. He remains at ESPN in a new role.
In addition to her husband, Kathy is survived by her daughter Meredith and her son Doug.
