Midco Sports Network to Produce and Broadcast Pod Games
Finally, some great news in 2020. This addresses the concerns that I had. As usual, NCHC Commissioner Josh Fenton is leading the way in college hockey.
When I heard the games were going to Omaha, Nebraska.The first question I asked, who’s producing the games. Then, I was told that the league was in the process of negotiating with Midco and possibly CBS Sports Network. We got the best of both worlds.
“We are thrilled to partner with Midco Sports Network to provide fans the opportunity to watch all NCHC games in the Pod from the comfort of home or anywhere in the world on NCHC.tv. With MidcoSN producing all 40 games, fans will be able to enjoy a high-quality broadcast for each game in the Pod on their television or mobile devices,” NCHC Commissioner Josh Fenton said. “The array of broadcasters announcing the games are all names NCHC fans are familiar with and will provide great passion and insight during the 20 days. We can’t wait to drop the puck!”
Yes, we’re spoiled in Grand Forks, we have great talent producing and calling the games. I wouldn’t want anything less.
I like all of our college hockey announcers @DStarmanHockey @benholdenpxp @JakeBrandt30 and @AHeinertMidcoSN we’re so lucky, blessed and spoiled. They’re very professional and talented. Tim is probably the dean of college hockey radio announcers. Future Hall of Fame radio PXP.
