Berman has covered some of New England’s biggest breaking-news stories including Super-Storm Sandy, the Sandy Hook Tragedy and the Boston Marathon Bombing.

He was also one of 30 journalists selected as a 2012 New England First Amendment Institute Fellow and he is now on the advisory board of the New England First Amendment Center’s Education Committee.
Berman is also an adjunct Professor of Broadcast Journalism at Quinnipiac University in Hamden when he’s not reporting at FOX CT.
In his free time, Beau volunteers with the Connecticut Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters program as a mentor to an 11 year old in the Hartford region.
He enjoys travel, and thus far, has visited 15 countries on three different continents, including Portugal, Belgium and Zimbabwe.
Berman is a graduate of Penn State University and a huge Nittany Lions fan. He’s a former ice hockey player who now spends his free time on the basketball court or on the pavement training for his third marathon.
He lives with his dog, Benny, in the greater-Hartford area.
