In recent developments, Midco Sports, an internet and cable TV provider from Sioux Falls, has announced layoffs of several employees including on-air play-by-play announcers Brian Shawn and Jody Norstedt based in Fargo. The company stated that they are focusing on enhancing their streamed content and forming partnerships with universities to provide content on their linear channels, Midco Sports and Midco Sports Two.
