Mark Farinella reports the following this morning:
- As if losing Terry Francona and Jonathan Papelbon wasn’t maddening enough, I have it on good authority that Heidi Watney will not be returning to her on-field reporting duties for NESN’s Red Sox broadcasts next year. Can’t reveal my source, but it’s a good one …
Was his source Dan Shaughnessy, who wrote this yesterday?
Tito, Theo, Papel-Gone. Don’t be surprised if Miss Heidi is next. That’s right, Heidi Watney might be the next member of the 2011 Red Sox cast to depart. Heidi’s contract is up at the end of the month and a person with knowledge of NESN’s upper management says Watney is done after four years as the Sox in-game reporter.
Sadly, indications seem strong that we’ve seen the last of Heidi Watney on the Red Sox telecasts. That’s a shame.
