In case you missed the note in today’s media column, the longest-running Red Sox-related personnel saga of the offseason — save for perhaps the search for a quality starting pitcher — is about to be settled.
NESN is yet to make a formal announcement, but industry sources have confirmed that Jenny Dell is the choice to replace Heidi Watney as the in-game reporter on NESN’s Red Sox telecasts.
Dell, a University of Massachusetts graduate, most recently worked at ESPN, where she had both on and off-camera duties.
She has been in Aspen to help with the network’s coverage of the Winter X Games.
But all video of her on-air work for the network was removed from ESPN.com yesterday.
