ESPN honors on air team by naming studio for them
ESPN has named its NFL studio in honor of two longtime staffers.
Berman, who hosted his last in-studio show Sunday from the set, is moving to a new role within the network.
Jackson, who retired from ESPN last year, worked with Berman for 29 years covering the NFL.
This marks the first time ESPN has named a studio in honor of an executive or commentator, according to the network.
A plaque outside the studio reads:
“In recognition of their immeasurable contributions to the company and our industry, ESPN officially declares this the Chris Berman-Tom Jackson studio. Their 29-year on-air partnership is a sports television record that has earned them a special place in the hearts and minds of football fans everywhere. They will always be part of the ESPN family.”
