A jack of all trades at ESPN since 1979, Chris Berman has become the face of the network. He is ESPN's top broadcaster for games with a historical context (Ripken's 2131st game) and playoff assignments. Additionally, he appears on Sportscenter and hosts the NFL pre and postgame shows.

In his lengthy career, the Brown University graduate has covered 17 All Star games and 17 World Series. He has also covered golf's U.S. Open twenty times. He is the master of ceremonies for the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions. Berman is a six time NSSA Sportscaster of the Year.
