Charles and Maureen have one child , a daughter named Christiana Barkley . Their only child graduated from Villanova University in Pennsylvania and attended the Columbia Journalism School. Barkley told USA Today in 2016 of his daughter’s passionate fandom for Villanova basketball.
He finished his career with a defensive rating of 105, which is terrible for an era where teams scored like 89 points a game. But he played on an aging team in Philly and on an offensive-minded team in Phoenix, who relied on outscoring the other team rather than make defensive stop.
He has stated plans to retire from TV in 2023. His salary with TNT is $6 million per year. Personal Life: Barkley married Maureen Blumhardt in 1989, and the two have a daughter, Christina (b. 1989).
