ESPN Legend Chris Berman’s New Gig Mocked Mercilessly on Social Media

The former “SportsCenter” host will be calling a handful of Red Sox games on local radio.

Chris Berman is back, back, back, back … in the radio booth.

The former SportsCenter host and mainstay of ESPN coverage has taken a job as a radio broadcaster doing a handful of Boston Red Sox games.
