More sad news Wednesday morning as we learned that Kathy Berman, wife of ESPN icon and host Chris Berman has passed away after a two car accident in Woodbury, Connecticut.
"This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend," John Skipper, president of ESPN, 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 stepped down as the host of Sunday NFL Countdown but remains with ESPN after signing a new contract.
