MOORHEAD-Minnesota State University Moorhead has renewed its television broadcast agreement with WDAY'Z XTRA for 2018-19, providing live coverage of home football and basketball conference games as well as the monthly "DragonsLIVE" show for the fifth straight year.

All MSUM broadcasts on WDAY'Z XTRA are produced by GO! TEAM Productions, consisting of a totally student-run team under the supervision of Alex Nelson and Jon Wepking.

The partnership between WDAY and MSUM began as a single-game broadcast of the Go Pink basketball games in 2013. The following 2014-15 athletic year, the coverage bloomed to include all home football and basketball games. In 2015-16, the Dragons included two volleyball games that followed football coverage and a full season of monthly "DragonsLIVE" shows. In 2017-18, volleyball matches were included once again along with home football and basketball conference games.

The first "DragonsLIVE" episode will air on Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2018 at 9:30 p.m. on WDAY'Z XTRA as a fall sports preview.

MSUM's first televised game will be the home football game against the University of Minnesota-Crookston on Thursday, Aug. 30 at 6:30 p.m.
