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

Midco Sports, a Sioux Falls-based internet and cable TV provider, has recently laid off several employees, including on-air play-by-play announcers Brian Shawn and Jody Norstedt based in Fargo. 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. Some of the employees who were laid off may have the opportunity to continue working with the company in a freelance capacity.
