According to reports, Kathy Berman, the wife of ESPN’s Chris Berman, died in an auto accident on Tuesday. The accident took place in Woodbury, Connecticut and it involved one other vehicle.


Berman, a teacher, was married to Chris for more than 33 years and had two children, Meredith and Douglas.

“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.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Berman family during this difficult time.
