Kings TV personality Heidi Androl, who was arrested on suspicion of DUI on the 105 freeway around 2:45 a.m. Monday and did not participate in the Fox Sports West telecast of the Kings’ game against Calgary Monday night, is scheduled to return to her duties Thursday during the Kings’ next home game.

‘We expect her to be back on Thursday,’ Mike Altieri, the Kings’ vice president of communications and broadcasting, said Tuesday. He declined to comment further, saying it was a personal matter.


Fox Sports spokeswoman Whitney Garvens declined to comment. ‘We do not discuss personnel matters,’ Garvens said.

Androl’s arrest occurred several hours after she had worked at an event at the Club Nokia honoring Luc Robitaille for his Hockey Hall of Fame induction. She conducted interviews and filmed features for the team’s website during the event.

The Kings’ next game is Wednesday at San Jose. Androl wouldn’t normally be part of the broadcast crew for a road game.
