Bison Media Guide: Midco Sports Network

The FM area would be far less informed about NDSU athletics without the people who cover the Bison on radio, TV or print, like Midco Sports Network.

All of us purvey the furthest regions for the latest information about NDSU athletics. Some of us go to social media, others turn on the television or the radio and some may even open up the newspaper. Regardless of your medium, we all see the same familiar faces when searching out the latest Bison news. So, we thought it would be nice to bring attention to the hard work these recognizable figures bring to our community. Without them, how would we stay up to date with our favorite school? The fact of the matter is that the Fargo-Moorhead area would be far less informed about NDSU athletics without these people. That is why we pieced together the Bison Media Guide.
