Although in Minnesota and South Dakota hundreds of hours a year of Minnesota and South Dakota local programming such as WCHA Hockey (in 2007-08 over 35 Minnesota State, Mankato, St. Cloud State and University of Minnesota, Duluth games were broadcast) along with a few South Dakota State University sporting events. Expect more Minnesota and South Dakota sporting events in the future. If there are events that you would like to see, send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
