ESPN President John Skipper had this to say on this sad news “This is a devastating tragedy and difficult to comprehend. 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.” What devastating news for Chris Berman, who had been taking a lesser role for ESPN recently. Our hearts go out to him at this trying time. Thoughts and prayers for him and his family.
