MILWAUKEE – Play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo has signed a contract extension to remain with NESN, but the network’s Red Sox telecasts will be without in-game reporter Heidi Watney next year, industry sources indicate.Watney, whose contract had also expired, is leaving to work for Time Warner Cable in southern California. Watney will work as a sideline reporter on the Time Warner Cable Laker telecasts, beginning with the 2012-13 season. She had worked on NESN’s Red Sox telecasts and other Red Sox programming for the past four seasons. Her new job allows her to return to her native California. Watney becomes the third on-air personality to leave NESN this year, joining former Bruins’ host Kathryn Tappen, who left to join the NHL Network, and former NESN Daily anchor Jade McCarthy to return to her native Philadelphia.
Sad day. Can’t say I didn’t see it coming though. NESN is like a revolving door of hot bitches. Hazel Mae, Kathryn Tappen, Heidi Watney etc. Either somebody is sexually harassing these chicks in the workplace or they just refuse to pay these women. Granted Heidi actually lasted longer than I thought she would. I thought for she’d be out the door once the Red Sox clubhouse started running train on her a couple years ago.
Regardless before I freak out about this I’m going wait to see who NESN replaces her with. They better not pull another Kathryn Tappen for Dale Arnold switcheroo on us and replace Heidi with some midget dude. That may be grounds for an Occupy NESN type protest. But as long as they bring in another smoking hot slut I’ll be happy. You can’t resign Watney? Fine. Bring on the next slut and all with be forgiven.
PS – Good to see Heidi will be working the sidelines for Lakers games now. I wonder if she’ll still get offended when people imply she got the job because of her ass rather than her reporting ability? Whatever. That was part of her charm. Either way she will be missed….Vios con dios Heidi…Vi0os con dios.
