Recently, Midco Sports, an internet and cable TV provider based in Sioux Falls, has let go of several employees, including on-air play-by-play announcers Brian Shawn and Jody Norstedt who are based in Fargo. The company stated that they are planning to improve their streaming content and form partnerships with universities to provide more content on their linear channels, Midco Sports and Midco Sports Two. Some of the employees who were laid off may have the opportunity to continue working with the company in a freelance capacity.

Midco Sports currently holds contracts for broadcasting University of North Dakota hockey, football, and men’s and women’s basketball games, as well as South Dakota State University, University of South Dakota athletics, and Augustana men’s hockey. These partnerships have allowed Midco Sports to provide coverage of a wide range of sporting events to their viewers. The company is now looking to expand its offerings by forming new partnerships with universities and enhancing its streamed content.
