Andrea Kremer Discusses New Health & Safety Correspondent Role For NFL Network

BACK IN ACTION: SI.com’s Richard Deitsch profiled NFL Network’s Melissa Stark, co-host of the net's 7:00am ET Sunday pregame show "First On The Field.” The show “features the quartet" of Stark, former NFLers Sterling Sharpe and LaDainian Tomlinson, and analyst Michael Lombardi. If one can “endure the cacophonous Sharpe … it's a watchable show.” NFL Net Exec Producer Eric Weinberger said that he “did not consider it any risk” to bring Stark back to TV after a hiatus from '08-11. Deitsch noted Stark is signed with the NFL Net through '14, and her contract states that she "can't do sports for another network.” But her options are “open for news or entertainment and Stark has interest in morning television and news or perhaps hosting a syndicated show” (SI.com, 11/12).
