Named the company’s first female national NFL Insider in August 2015, Josina Anderson’s days at ESPN could be coming to an end.

Anderson, who appears on shows like NFL LiveSunday NFL Countdown and SportsCenter, is only under contract through the summer and when her deal expires it may not be renewed by The Worldwide Leader, The New York Post reports.

“Though nothing is done yet, it would be unsurprising if the two sides agree to part ways with Anderson moving on to a new job,” according to The Post. 

Typically, as was the case with Stephen A. Smith, ESPN will lock up their top talent before their contracts expire. In Anderson’s case, it isn’t a good sign for the future with the network that her contract has months left on it and a new agreement has not been reached.

Should Anderson leave ESPN, she should be able to latch on with another network or outlet, as her NFL connections are legit. Anderson was able to nail down an exclusive interview with Antonio Brown that aired over Super Bowl weekend, a good get for the 41-year-old reporter.

A native of Washington D.C., Anderson was a weekend sports co-anchor/reporter/producer for FOX 31 in Denver prior to joining ESPN.
