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.”
