Who presents TNT’s Inside The NBA? Meet Adam Lefkoe, who replaces Ernie Johnson on Tuesdays



For longtime viewers of TNT’s NBA coverage, it’s always a shock to see a studio show that isn’t hosted by Ernie Johnson.

Over the course of the past three seasons, that has been the case on Tuesday nights, with Adam Lefkoe slipping into the role alongside Shaquille O’Neal, Candace Parker and Dwyane Wade.

Lefkoe is a longtime sportscaster, and his early jobs saw him operate as a host for WHAS in Louisville, Kentucky.

In 2013 he joined Bleacher Report where he was involved with video content with the company, as well as NFL coverage.

Ahead of the 2019-20 season, it was announced that Lefkoe would join the weekly Tuesday squad, after ‘Players Only’ night was canceled.

TNT’s double-headed coverage on Tuesday begins with the Philadelphia 76ers heading to Madison Square Garden to face the New York Knicks, before the Denver Nuggets battle the Utah Jazz in the night cap.
