Heidi Watney is the cousin of professional golfer Nick Watney and the daughter of Fresno State golf coach Mike Watney. Watney competed in the Miss California pageant, where she was the first runner-up in 2002. She was a National Merit Scholar and attended the University of San Diego on an academic scholarship, where she graduated with honors in 2003. Watney was a weekend sports anchor and sports talk radio host in Frenso before becoming the Boston Red Sox on-field reporter for the Boston-based regional sports network NESN. In 2011, she was hired away to cover the Los Angeles Galaxy for the regional sports network Time Warner Cable SportsNet, but left in 2012 to join the MLB Network.
MLB Network is an American television sports channel dedicated to baseball. It is primarily owned by Major League Baseball, with television providers Comcast, DirecTV, Time Warner Cable and Cox Communications having minority ownership. The channel's headquarters and studios are located in the Secaucus, New Jersey facility which formerly housed MSNBC's studios. MLB Network soft-launched on December 16, 2008 with a rolling automated loop of archival programming and promotions for the network for cable systems that carried the network's transmissions leading up to the January 1 launch, and became the fourth major North American professional sports league to launch its own 24-hour cable network. The channel fully launched at 6 p.m. EST with the premiere of Hot Stove.
