NESN has reportedly hired Heidi Watney’s replacement. According to multiple sources, former ESPN reporter Jenny Dell has agreed to join the regional sports net as a reporter.
Dell, a UMass graduate, has held multiple roles at ESPN, both on-air and off. Most recently, she has been in Aspen covering the Winter X Games. Her AccuScore reports on ESPN.com were also a very popular attraction.
As you may remember, Watney left the network in November to take a position with Time Warner Cable in California, holding a similar role reporting for the Los Angeles Lakers.
