About Us

The Steam Room is the new audio vehicle for two of sports media's most iconic personalities, keeping the conversation going beyond from the desk inside Studio J. After nearly 20 years on TNT's Inside The NBA, Ernie Johnson and Charles Barkley still have a lot to talk about, and with this platform they'll tackle new topics in the classic unscripted style that fans have come to love. In addition to NBA talk, EJ and Chuck will dive into current events, pop culture, and even local news. Look for The Steam Room on Thursdays starting December 12th.
