It’s hard to believe now, but when ESPN was launched back in 1979 there were many who doubted that an all-sports network could survive. Of course it survived just fine and now is one of the biggest media powers in the world, and Chris Berman has been a vital part of ESPN’s success. Born not far from the ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut, Berman joined the fledgling network about a month after it started and he has been there ever since. In nearly 30 years with ESPN, Berman has done just about everything, from anchoring “SportsCenter” to hosting “Monday Night Countdown” to some less glamorous jobs like covering competitive darts in the early days of ESPN. He is still the biggest star on ESPN and has won more sportscasting awards than he can count. His “Swami” character on “Sunday NFL Countdown” is one of the most popular segments of the show, and many fans tune in just to get his selections.
Named one of People Magazine’s “Most Fascinating TV Stars,” Chris Berman is sure to attract a crowd to any conference or event. TSE can take care of all the Chris Berman appearance fee negotiations for you and help you save time and money in the process.
