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

Midco Sports, an internet and cable TV provider based in Sioux Falls, has recently made several changes to its operations. The company announced that it had laid off several employees, including on-air play-by-play announcers Brian Shawn and Jody Norstedt who are based in Fargo. While the reasons behind these layoffs were not immediately clear, the company stated that they are planning to enhance their streamed content and form partnerships with universities to provide content on their linear channels, Midco Sports and Midco Sports Two.

One of the key areas where Midco Sports is focusing its attention is sports coverage. The company currently holds contracts for broadcasting a range of sporting events from universities such as the 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 comprehensive coverage of a wide range of sporting events to their viewers.

While some of the employees who were laid off may have been disappointed by this news, there may be other opportunities available to them within the company. According to a statement from Midco Sports, some of these employees may have the opportunity to continue working with the company in a freelance capacity. This could mean that they could still contribute their skills and expertise to the company while also having more flexibility in their work arrangements.
