Biography

Broadcasting career

A graduate of Emerson College, Berthiaume's broadcasting career began at WTIC-TV in Hartford, Connecticut, where he covered University of Connecticut men's and women's basketball and their involvement in the NCAA tournament. He then went on to the now-defunct CNNSI network and eventually to ESPN in February 2000, starting at ESPNEWS and later, anchoring for SportsCenter. In October 2012, Steve Berthiaume was selected as the Arizona Diamondbacks' broadcaster replacing Daron Sutton. Along with Bob Brenly the duo will do the play by play for the 2013 baseball season. Berthiaume also spent time as an anchor at the ABC affiliate in Pensacola, Florida (WEAR), as well as the NBC affiliates in Providence, Rhode Island; Columbia, South Carolina; and Charlottesville, Virginia (WJAR-TV, WIS-TV, and WVIR-TV, respectively).

SNY and back to ESPN

In 2006, Berthiaume left ESPN to become chief sportscaster for the new SNY network started by the New York Mets; however, in late January 2007, SNY let Berthiaume out of his contract to rejoin ESPN's SportsCenter on March 28, 2007, in order to work closer to his wife.[1] He also anchors many (usually weekend) editions of Baseball Tonight.

Arizona Diamondbacks

In 2012, Berthiaume was hired by MLB's Arizona Diamondbacks to serve as a play-by-play broadcaster for FOX Sports Arizona, replacing Daron Sutton, and was quoted as saying, "The opportunity to be at the ballpark every day is a dream come true. I'm thrilled." Berthiaume's previous play-by-play experience comes from ESPN, where he called several professional games as well as the College World Series.[2]
