Heidi Watney will not be returning to NESN next year. The Red Sox reporter has decided that she would like to be closer to her family.

“Heidi Watney will not be returning to NESN next year. She is pursuing other opportunities that would bring her closer to her family on the West Coast,” said NESN president and CEO Sean McGrail. “We respect Heidi’s decision and would like to thank her for everything that she has brought to NESN over the past four years and wish her the very best.”

The California native has competed in the Miss California pageant, where she was the first runner-up in 2002. The 2003 University of San Diego alum is also the cousin of professional golfer Nick Watney.
