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 undergone some changes in 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 admit that cuts were being made as part of an evaluation of talent for the upcoming 2024 season and beyond.

Andrew Siciliano was a well-known anchor who previously hosted “Red Zone Channel” on DirecTV. He made significant contributions to the network in his role as an analyst and morning show anchor. Melissa Stark was a popular sideline reporter who also contributed to the network’s news analysis coverage. James Palmer was known for his insightful commentary as an analyst, while Will Selva brought a unique perspective as a news analyst.

The decision to let go of these on-air personalities comes as NFL Network seeks to cut costs despite its direct affiliation with the highly profitable NFL. This move may be part of a broader strategy to increase the network’s appeal and attract new viewers. 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.
