Heidi Watney Headed to MLB Network

Almost a year ago to the day, we told you that NESN reporter Heidi Watney was on her way to becoming one of the first hires over at Time Warner SportsNet.

Watney never worked a minute covering the Los Angeles Lakers and mysteriously left the network in September (the Boston Globe discovered a theory as to why she left).

Well, the University of San Diego graduate has resurfaced with a new gig on the MLB Network as a studio host and reporter.

“I’m extremely excited to return to baseball by joining MLB Network’s on-air talent lineup. Baseball is a true passion of mine and I’m looking forward to covering all 30 MLB clubs 365 days a year,” said Watney in a statement.

She will make her MLB Network debut in January.

TWC Close to Hiring NESN Reporter Heidi Watney?

Despite being a year away from launch, Time Warner Cable is reportedly close to hiring a sideline reporter for one of their two new regional sports networks.

According to The Boston Globe, NESN in-game reporter Heidi Watney is leaving her gig as in-game reporter on the network’s Red Sox telecasts for a new job reporting on the Los Angeles Lakers for Time Warner Cable starting in the 2012-13 NBA season.

The California native has spent the last four seasons at the New England cable sports giant. When contacted by The Globe via text while vacationing in Australia, Watney said: “Nothing is final and not dealing with it until I return at [the] end of the month.”
