Sad news for the sportscaster came in May 2017. His wife faced death in a car accident. The news came just a day before her husband's 62nd birthday. Katherina was struck by another vehicle and sheered off the road landing upside down in a small body of water.
Edward Bertulis who was driving another vehicle was also dead as his car ran into a utility pole after the collision. Katherine was driving a 2003 Lexus SC 430. Their children on a statement said,
'Kathy Berman had a huge heart, and this would have warmed hers beyond belief. It certainly warmed ours.'
The couple's son works as the New York Market Manager for the alcohol-delivery service whereas Meredith is the director of Regional Engagement Programs at Brown University in Rhode Island.
