Recently, Midco Sports, a Sioux Falls-based internet and cable TV provider, has made the difficult decision to let go of several employees. Among those affected were on-air play-by-play announcers Brian Shawn and Jody Norstedt, who are based in Fargo. The company stated that they plan to focus on improving their streamed content and forming partnerships with universities to provide more content on their linear channels, Midco Sports and Midco Sports Two.

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 the company to provide coverage of a wide range of sporting events to their viewers. However, in order to continue providing top-quality content to their customers, the company has had to make some tough decisions about staffing.

Despite the layoffs, some of the affected employees may have the opportunity to continue working with the company in a freelance capacity. This will allow them to contribute their expertise and knowledge while still being able to maintain a flexible schedule that fits their personal needs. Overall, Midco Sports is committed to providing its customers with the best possible content and service, even in these challenging times.
