Looks like ESPN ‘‘SportsNation’’ co-host Michelle Beadle is going Hollywood, and Erin Andrews might follow her out the door.

ESPN confirmed Tuesday that Beadle is leaving. She’s going to NBC Universal, where she will appear on ‘‘Access Hollywood’’ and the network’s Olympics coverage, according to

‘‘We worked hard to keep her, but she has some different aspirations,’’ ESPN president John Skipper said.

Andrews and the Worldwide Leader are in talks about a new deal. In recent years, Andrews has moved beyond sideline reporting, co-hosting the first hour of ‘‘College GameDay,’’ contributing to “Good Morning America” and performing on “Dancing with the Stars.’’

ESPN got one bit of good news when anchor and radio host Scott Van Pelt agreed to a new deal Monday.
