Berg has been working as a pundit for Norwegian TV 2 Sporten since being dismissed as boss of Lillestrom in October of last year.
The former Manchester United and Blackburn defender was offered the post by the Ewood Park club's owners following a successful interview on Monday.
The 43-year-old's appointment will conclude Blackburn's protracted search for a successor to Steve Kean whose resignation ended a troubled and unpopular reign at the end of last month.
Rovers managing director Derek Shaw announced that a press conference will be held at 8.30am on Thursday when Berg will be presented to the media.
Shaw revealed that Berg - a member of the Manchester United squad that won the treble in 1999 - became the board's number one choice on the back of an impressive interview.
Shaw said: "He interviewed well and he moved straight to the top of our list."
Blackburn are currently fifth in the Championship table having been led by caretaker boss Eric Black for the past six matches.
