A little while ago, I reported that Jen Royle was set to become Heidi Watney’s replacement as NESN’s in game Boston Red Sox reporter but it appears as though I may have been wrong.
El Presidente, of Barstool Sports, says he is hearing that ESPN’s Jenny Dell is going to be the next “Heidi Watney” per se.
Either women would be a good choice for the job. Both are attractive and have actual merit in the sports broadcasting field.
Dell currently works as on on camera talent for ESPN and would be a welcome addition to the Red Sox broadcast but nothing is official yet and El Presidente did not reveal who he heard the news from. Seeing as he is the editor of a smut blog, it could very well be nothing but it’s all we’ve got as of now.
Here is Dell’s Twitter and Facebook.
Heidi Watney’s replacement at NESN may have been found. According to the internets, Baltimore area reporter, Jen Royle, is to be named Watney’s replacement at NESN.
It would make sense as it was announced today that she would not return to her job at Baltimore’s 105.7 the Fan in hopes of returning to her hometown Boston for a job.
“I can’t confirm that I’m making a career move,” Royle said. “But I’ve been away from home for 15 years, and in my heart, I want to replant my roots in Boston.”
Royle seems like she would be a deserving replacement for Watney with plenty of reporting experience and good looks, which seems to be a requirement of female on TV reporters these days i.e. Erin Andrews, Jenn Brown and Samantha Steele.
If the rumors are true, welcome to Boston Jen! You can tweet Jen @Jen_Royle to congratulate her.
