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

The NFL Network, the official network of the National Football League, has recently made some changes to its on-air personalities. Several well-known anchors, including Andrew Siciliano, Melissa Stark, James Palmer, and Will Selva, have been let go from the network. An NFL Network spokesperson confirmed that cuts were taking place as part of an evaluation of talent for the upcoming 2024 season and beyond.

Andrew Siciliano, a popular anchor who used to host the “Red Zone Channel” on DirecTV, is among those who have departed the network. Melissa Stark, James Palmer, and Will Selva, all well-respected personalities on NFL Network in their respective roles as an analyst, sideline reporter, news analyst, and morning show anchor have also been let go.

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 especially 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 then.
