2/04/21 – Lawrence, KS – After three years of broadcasting Kansas Preps+, Jayhawk Gameday Live and countless games and highlights, Midco® has decided to discontinue MidcoSN® Kansas. The decision comes after assessing the local sports streaming climate as well as identifying some barriers to produce broadcasts. As a result, MidcoSN HD 622 and MidcoSN SD 32 won’t be available after Friday, April 30.
“This was an extremely difficult decision to make. We thank on-air talent Kevin Romary and Taryn Tempel as well as the four talented team members behind the scenes who created excellent content for our viewers,” said VP of Sports & Advertising Mark Powell. “Sports are in Lawrence’s DNA, and we were proud to contribute to the sports scene for a few years.”
Midco’s commitment to Lawrence and its six surrounding communities will continue. Along with delivering high-speed internet via fiber technology, Midco provides TV, phone, data center and advertising services to residential and business customers in greater Lawrence.
The company’s community partnerships will also continue, including commitments to the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence’s Center for Great Futures, Douglas County food bank Just Food and the Midco Computer Lab at the Lawrence Public Library.
