Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

This is... weird. Basketball Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley dropped by the 11 p.m. newscast of Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV last night and tried his hand at meteorology. We can’t say it went well. It’s not entirely clear what Sir Charles was doing there in the first place, though he did stick around for sports and generally hijacked the entire broadcast. (We’re guessing Chuck arrived a bit early for his hit on the following Sports Sunday program and decided he needed a bit more air time than the half hour he’d been allotted.)


As always, Charles Barkley is not a role model—especially for prospective weather stars. [KNXV]
