I don't know whether or not he's throwing his weight around or not to get the best gigs but I'm sure the fact that guy brings in ratings has something to do with it too.
I will agree that he has been a big part in making ESPN what it is. That said, he is a terrible announcer
. I don't think that you really meant announcer as I only think that he does some baseball games, of which they are a tough listen. I also question the ratings factor. Are you really watching the ESPN postgame to hear Berman or to hear analysis, of which he offers none, or see highlights and interviews?? The ratings factor is so overblown. I would watch the postgame show whether it was him or you doing it. The names of the guys doing the games means very little. Just look at MNF ratings to see that.
