New York, NY (AP) - Look out, March Madness. Charles Barkley is
coming.

CBS and Turner executives confirmed Tuesday that the brash Hall
of Famer and other big names from TNT's NBA broadcasts would be
part of their joint coverage of the NCAA tournament starting this
season.

Expect Marv Albert to call some early round games and Barkley
and Kenny Smith to offer analysis from the studio under the
14-year, $10.8 billion deal the two companies signed in April.

Tournament games will air on CBS and three of Turner's cable
channels: TNT, TBS and truTV. Sports chiefs Sean McManus of CBS and
David Levy of Turner said at the Sports Media & Technology
conference in New York that the companies would combine their
rosters of basketball commentators.
