CNN’s John King Tapped to Host NBA TV Newsmagazine, ‘True NBA’

CNN’s John King is expanding his game, and will host a new newsmagazine program for NBA TV.

“True NBA” will premiere on the network December 16, and will see King, along with a  team of NBA analysts and correspondents  to feature “four exclusive stories that go beyond traditional sports reporting to look at dynamic players and memorable events that have impacted the NBA.”

No word on whether King’s “Magic Wall” will be making an appearance.

NBA TV is owned by NBA Digital, a company which is jointly managed by the league and King’s colleagues at Turner Sports.

Our sister blog SportsNewser has much more on the program, including the piece that King will be producing for the premiere episode.
