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

The NFL Network has recently announced changes to its on-air personalities, including the departure of well-known anchor Andrew Siciliano and popular personalities Melissa Stark, James Palmer, and Will Selva. 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, who previously hosted the “Red Zone Channel” on DirecTV, is among those who have left the network. He made significant contributions to the network in his role as an anchor. Melissa Stark, James Palmer, and Will Selva, all popular personalities on NFL Network, have also been let go. They each contributed 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 may be part of a broader strategy by NFL Network to increase its appeal and make cost-cutting efforts. Despite being directly affiliated with the highly profitable NFL, the network is seeking to reduce expenses. This move may also be related to 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
