Proof that good looks, not necessarily talent, are what will get you and keep you a job at NESN:
NESN, New Englandâ€™s most watched sports network, announced today that Heidi Watney and NESN have agreed to a multi-year contract extension. Watney joined NESN in May 2008 and served as the networkâ€™s Boston Red Sox game-day reporter delivering pre-game, in-game and post-game updates and interviews from the ballpark. Heidi also works as an anchor/reporter for NESN SportsDesk and contributes to NESN.com with a weekly column.
â€œHeidi is a talented reporter whose versatility and work ethic help her deliver the news and stories that consistently connect the fans with the team,â€ said Joel Feld, NESNâ€™s executive vice president of programming and executive producer. â€œWe are very happy to extend her contract and expect her to take on an even larger role with NESN and NESN.com.
The woman knows as much about baseball as I do nuclear physics. But she sure looks pretty trying to say the phrase “toeing the rubber” – let’s give her an extension!
NESN makes the baby Jesus cry. That’s all I’m sayin’.
