Some changes are coming for this season’s UND hockey TV and radio broadcasts – Grand Forks Herald

GRAND FORKS There will be some notable changes this season with UND hockey broadcasts, both on television and radio.

The changes come in the wake of UND’s new deals with Midco Sports and iHeart Media.

While both entities previously brought UND athletics to television and radio, coverage will improve from this season.

Here are four things you might notice:

1. Midco organizes pregame, intermission shows

Midco now has a 30-minute pregame show from the Ralph Engelstad Arena ahead of the first game of each home weekend, starting with the exhibition game against the University of Manitoba.

Midco hired Taylor Budge from WDAY-TV to host the pregame shows and intermissions. Those shows will be attended by analysts who will rotate regularly.

Three analysts expected to be part of the broadcasts are former UND players Monique Lamoureux-Morando, Erik Fabian and Dean Barsness.

2. Heinert still does both Midco and CBS

TV play-by-play commentator Alex Heinert will field the vast majority of UND’s home games this season, but he’ll miss a few in the second half when calling national CBS Sports games with Dave Starman.

Former UND goalkeeper Jake Brandt returns to the stand as an analyst. Midco has not yet announced who will replace Heinert on play-by-play during his absence.

Jody Norstedt and David Brown filled in last season.

Tim Hennessy will be back in the booth for his 44th season with radio play-by-play commentary of UND hockey games.

But next to him there will be changes.

Longtime color commentator Steve Olson chose not to return this season. Former UND defender Travis Dunn will take care of the home games.

For the first time, UND also regularly travels to road games with a color commentator. It will be Ralph Engelstad Arena announcer Darrin Looker who will be the radio play-by-play voice of the UND women’s hockey team.

4. NCHC TV has a new location

For those who stream games from the NCHC, they will get a new location this season.

Instead of NCHC.tv, the streams can now be found on the regular NCHCs page, nchchockey.com. If you type NCHC.tv into a browser, you will be redirected to nchchockey.com.

The streaming platform will continue to be called NCHC TV.

Mobile apps are expected to get an update before the start of the season.
