For years, Chris Berman has been a monumental figure at ESPN. 

Whether you tuned in to hear Berman talk football on Sundays, or listen to his infamous "back, back, back, back, back, back, gone!" call during the annual MLB Home Run Derby, the veteran sportscaster has always been full of passion.

But as soon as the NFL season comes to an end, he'll have a completely different role with the network.

According to an ESPN release, Berman will step away from his longtime position as the face of ESPN’s NFL studio coverage, the NFL Draft and the MLB's Home Run Derby.

A six-time National Sportscaster of the Year, Berman has been with ESPN since 1979. Per ESPN, Berman will continue to host ESPN’s NFL PrimeTime highlights show from the field after the Super Bowl as well as the NFL Conference Championship games. 

He will also offer opinion on historical events in the NFL and will appear weekly on Monday Night Countdown. In addition, he will handle play-by-play for ESPN Radio during the MLB Divisional Playoffs and participate in ESPN’s annual ESPY Awards.

“The whole experience here has been a dream come true,” Berman said in the release. “When we started in 1979, I was just 24. Nobody knew if ESPN would make it, or, for that matter, if cable TV would make it. I certainly wasn’t sure I would make it, but I really didn’t care. We were too busy having a blast, talking sports with viewers who were just like us, even if it was during the wee hours of the morning. We got to band together here in Bristol, Connecticut, and put out a product of which we were all very proud."

No doubt it's been a monumental career for Berman.
