Biography:

Chris Berman is a popular American sportscaster who has held a host of duties while working for ESPN and ABC Sports. Since beginning with the networks as an anchor on SportsCenter, Chris is now the host of NFL pregame shows Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown as well as the host of the U.S. Open golf tournament. His widely recognized catch-phrases and clever puns employed to incorporate players’ names into the broadcast have made him one of the most popular, and likable sportscasters today. In 2010, Chris was awarded the Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award given annually to a member of the radio and TV broadcast industry for longtime exceptional contributions in the realm of professional football.

Sports Speaker Chris graduated from Brown University in 1977 and began working as a weekend sports anchor at a local channel in Hartford, Connecticut. Just a month after ESPN was founded in 1979, Chris was brought on board as an anchor and is now one of the longest-tenured employees at ESPN along with Bob Ley. While working with the network he has acted as a host for a number of annual sports events including the NFL Draft, the MLB Home Run Derby, and a brief stint as the studio co-host of the Stanley Cup Finals. Chris also provides the play-by-play for MLB games broadcast on ESPN and one of the network’s play-by-play announcers for Monday Night Football broadcasts. He has now become affectionately known as the face of ESPN and has been named the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association National Sportscaster of the Year 6 times over his career.

Chris has been featured in Nutrisystem TV commercials alongside his fellow sportscasters Dan Marino, Terry Bradshaw, and Mike Golic. He has also made cameo appearances in major motion pictures including Necessary Roughness, Little Big League, and Adam Sandler’s comedic football films The Waterboy and The Longest Yard.
