It appears that Dale Earnhardt Jr. is moving on.

The Athletic is reporting today that Dale Earnhardt Jr. is leaving the NBC broadcast booth and heading to two new players in the live sports broadcasting landscape Amazon Prime Video and Warner Bros. Discovery Sports.

According to The Athletic report, Earnhardt, who is currently without a contract for 2024, plans to sit out this season before joining Amazon and Warner Bros. Discovery when those two outlets begin racing coverage in 2025. Amazon Prime, which this past season broadcast the NFL on Thursday nights, and Warner Bros. Discovery (via TNT) are scheduled to broadcast five races each season, beginning in 2025.

“Dale Earnhardt Jr. is beloved in the NASCAR world and has made numerous contributions to NBC Sports, from his work as an analyst on our NASCAR coverage to his experiences as a correspondent at major events like the Indianapolis 500, the Kentucky Derby, the Super Bowl and the Olympics,” an NBC Sports spokesperson told The Athletic. “We thank Dale and we wish him the best going forward.”
