The Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN) announced they'll stage a press conference in New York Tuesday to address ESPN's suspension of Jemele Hill.

The protest will be held outside of the Disney-owned network's Upper West Side offices at 12 noon ET. Hill, co-anchor of ESPN's 6 p.m. ET "SportsCenter" with Michael Smith, was suspended two weeks by ESPN Monday for what the company called repeated violations of its social media policies.

"Rev. Sharpton and NAN will call for a meeting with the Chairman of the Board and demand an immediate reinstatement of Jemele Hill along with other demands pertaining to corporate diversity," said Sharpton and NAN in a joint statement.

ESPN previously declined to comment on Sharpton's threat to lead a boycott of network advertisers.
