Midco Sports lays off announcers who have contracts with UND, SDSU, and other universities

In recent news, Midco Sports, a Sioux Falls-based internet and cable TV provider, has made several layoffs, including on-air play-by-play announcers Brian Shawn and Jody Norstedt, who are based in Fargo. The company announced that they are looking to enhance their streamed content and form partnerships with universities to provide more content on their linear channels, Midco Sports and Midco Sports Two. While some of the employees who were laid off may have the opportunity to continue working with the company in a freelance capacity, others will need to search for new employment opportunities.

Midco Sports currently holds contracts for broadcasting several high-profile sporting events from universities across the region, including University of North Dakota hockey, football, and men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as South Dakota State University and University of South Dakota athletics. These partnerships have allowed Midco Sports to provide comprehensive coverage of a wide range of sporting events to their viewers.
