Midco confirms job cuts for sports coverage team

(Fargo, ND) -- A representative with Midco tells WDAY Radio Now that the company has laid off some members of its sports coverage team.

The confirmation comes from Paige Pearson Meyer, the company's Vice President of Corporate Communications. 

"Next season, Midco Sports will focus on enhancing our streamed content on Midco Sports Plus and our university partnership content on our linear channels. At that time, high school sports and some original programming will no longer be produced by Midco Sports or broadcast on our linear channels. Because of this, we, unfortunately, had to make the difficult decision to reduce the number of full-time team members on the Midco Sports team. In the future, the impacted team members could be affiliated with Midco Sports in a freelance capacity. We’ve openly communicated the changes to our partner schools (UND, USD, SDSU and Augustana). We’re in those partnerships for the long-haul, and we will continue to focus on those relationships," said Pearson Meyer. 

Meyer said no additional information regarding the job cuts will be released.
