For years now, Ernie Johnson has greeted the basketball community after the late night TNT game. He facilitates the often off-the-wall conversation that happens on Inside the NBA. It takes a special personality to corral Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal in a conversation. On Wednesday, Apr 29 at 7 p.m. ET, ESPN will premiere an E60: special on Johnson’s unique life journey.
Johnson has shown remarkable courage by fighting cancer on and off for the last several years. He has also adopted kids from around the world, one which has muscular dystrophy. Johnson’s courage and giving will surely draw on some heart strings in this documentary.
Navigating a conversation with Barkley and Shaq on live television pales in comparison to the struggles Johnson faces at home. Make sure to tune in for this remarkable story.
