Kathy Berman and her husband, Chris Berman, had been married 33 years, with two children, before her fatal car accident Tuesday, May 9, in Woodbury, Connecticut. The driver of the other vehicle, Edward Bertulis, also passed.
ESPN President, John Skipper, issued the following statement:
“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. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris, Meredith, Doug and the entire family.”
Many Sportscasters and NFL teams have rallied to show support for Chris and his family.

Truly sad to hear Mrs. Kathy Berman is no longer with us. Praying for you Chris as I know you always told me she was your rock.
