People usually don't praise others, and Chris Broussard, a former ESPN reporter is not one to praise others as per his reputation on the internet, but he shows another side of himself today as he shares his wife's devotion to her work. Chris opens her heart praising his wife over social media on her achievement of the ultimate goal in her field.
The pride of a lioness in the shadow of the king.
Chris' wife, Crystal Naii Collins, makes her husband proud as she is named the number one gastroenterologists in all of America. She is also a Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology and shares particular interest in liver disease and specializes in Hepatitis. Although Chris opens his heart rarely for anyone, shares support as well as praise and respect for his wife's achievement.

Crystal achieved the title of No.1 Gastroenterologists in America by gaining maximum vote and her husband of 17 years, Chris tweeted out to his fans on his wife's attainment on social media.
Congrats to my lovely wife of 17 yrs, Crystal, 4 being named 1 of America's Top Gastroenterologists (Dr.) by Castle Connolly Publications!
Unkind exchange of words.
His wife and kids are of course not his only prize passion. His life’s work has had a definite battle cry over the years with many elaborate bickering among reporters and their spits of comments.
The God fearing Christian who is not afraid to speak directly about his faith, is no longer an ESPN reporter as he planned on leaving his comfort zone and perhaps choosing a better path. Announced first on October 14th, 2016, Chris left ESPN after working for twelve years and is rejoined by Colin Cowherd, Skip Bayless, and Jason Whitlock in FS1.
His most recent event of controversy was on May 2013, where he gave a statement on an NBA player, Jason Collins coming out as a homosexual, which stated,

“If you're openly living in unrepentant sin...I believe that's walking in open rebellion to God.”
With this disturbing commentary, ESPN was instantaneously forced to reply with an apologizing statement,
“We regret that a respectful discussion of personal viewpoints became a distraction from today’s news. ESPN is fully committed to diversity and welcomes Jason Collins’ announcement.”
It did not stop there with another war in its way with Bomani Jones on July 15, 2015. A simple name calling causing the argument to turn into a constant twitter war replies between Chris and Bomani for the world to see in the twitter feed.
Up close and personal
We never turn our back to our family especially our parents. Chris comes from a strong Christian family, and that has, of course, led him well and healthy throughout his career. With his net worth of $1 million this year, Chris should be comfortably supporting his family and his parents. But he has not revealed his current salary FS1 offered but it's sure that he's got a huge raise over previous earnings.#Sports Columnist
