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

The NFL Network, which is the flagship 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 all been let go from the network. While an NFL Network spokesperson did not confirm the names of those affected, they did acknowledge that cuts were taking place as part of the network’s evaluation of talent for the upcoming 2024 season and beyond.

Andrew Siciliano was a well-known anchor who used to host the “Red Zone Channel” on DirecTV. He made significant contributions to the network in his role as an analyst. Melissa Stark was a popular personality on NFL Network and made significant contributions as a sideline reporter. James Palmer was known for his analysis and insights into the league and was a valuable asset as a news analyst. Will Selva was an anchor on NFL Network’s morning show and made significant contributions in this role.

The decision to let go of these on-air personalities may be part of a broader strategy by NFL Network to make cost-cutting efforts despite its direct affiliation with the highly profitable NFL. The potential equity swap discussions with ESPN earlier this year may also have played a role in this move. There have been 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.
