Charles Barkley Says He Will Retire From TNT After 2024-25 Season

Our Show Times

Charles Barkley revealed on Friday that he would be retiring from his duties as a longtime TNT broadcaster following the 2024-25 season.

The NBA legend has served as a studio host for TNT’s Inside the NBA for years. His announcement also came amid Warner Bros. Discovery’s uncertainty regarding its media rights to the NBA next year.

“There’s been a lot of noise around our network the last few months,” Barkley said after Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night. “I just want to say, I talked to all the other networks, but I ain’t going nowhere other than TNT. But I have made the decision myself, no matter what happens, next year is going to be my last year on television.”

He continued, “I just want to say thank you to my NBA family. You guys have been great to me, my heart is full with joy and gratitude, but I’m going to pass the baton at the end of next year. I hope the NBA stays with TNT … I’m not going to another network, but I’m going to pass the baton to Jamal Crawford or Vince Carter or you Steve [Smith], but next year, I’m just going to retire after 25 years.”

More to come.
