According to Variety, longtime broadcast journalist Gayle King and NBA All-Star and commentator Charles Barkley are getting closer to inking a deal with the CNN. King & Barkley have been in talks of becoming the faces of a weekly CNN primetime show. The possibly-forthcoming CNN primetime show with King and Barkley may reportedly be discussed right before the TV industry’s annual “upfront” season. Since the venture has not been finalized, there is still a possibility that it may not actually come into fruition. As of now, no further details of their deal are available.
