Hazel Mae has been a fixture on NESN programming for the past four years, and even though the network had recently hired some more "eye candy" in Heidi Watney, she remained a favorite among Boston fans. That was until it was announced she was leaving last night....
“After four incredible and exciting years at NESN, I’ve decided now was the right time for me to make this difficult decision to leave,” she said in a statement released by NESN. “It has been both a personal and professional privilege to be a part of NESN and the dedicated SportsDesk team. During my time with the network, I’ve had more than a few once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, including the chance to cover two World Series and a Super Bowl. I am grateful to the Red Sox and Bruins ownership groups, NESN president, Sean McGrail, and all the players and staff who have supported and challenged me. Most importantly, I’d like to thank the amazing and passionate sports fans of New England, who have welcomed me into their homes and given me a chance to do the kind of work I enjoy.”I don't know much about Hazel but Bostonians seemed to enjoy her (I can see why). The Sports Desk anchor will end her duties at the end of the month.
