Report: Andrew Siciliano and other faces of ‘NFL Red Zone’ let go from NFL Network

NFL Network Takes Aim at Cost Cutting and Increasing Appeal with Personality Shuffle

The NFL Network, the official network of the National Football League, has recently announced changes to its on-air personalities. Andrew Siciliano, Melissa Stark, James Palmer, and Will Selva have been let go from the network. Although an NFL Network spokesperson did not confirm the exact names of those affected, they did reveal that cuts were being made as part of an evaluation of talent for the upcoming 2024 season and beyond.

One of the well-known anchors who have departed the network is Andrew Siciliano, who used to host the “Red Zone Channel” on DirecTV. Melissa Stark, James Palmer, and Will Selva are also among those who have been let go. They each made significant contributions to the network in their respective roles as an analyst, sideline reporter, news analyst, and morning show anchor.

The decision to let go of these on-air personalities comes as NFL Network seeks to make cost-cutting efforts despite its direct affiliation with the highly profitable NFL. This move may be part of a broader strategy to increase the network’s appeal in light of potential equity swap discussions with ESPN. Earlier this year, there were reports that the NFL and ESPN were in talks for ESPN to acquire an equity stake in NFL Network, which could shift control of the network and other NFL Media assets to ESPN. However, updates on the status of this potential deal have not been provided since the initial report.
