Forum Communications, which owns WDAY-TV, WDAY radio and The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead newspaper, got the nod over a bid submitted by the North Dakota NBC Network. A three-person NDHSAA media committee recommended Forum Communications as the winner earlier in the day to the five-year contract.

Forum Communication's bid of $680,000 was about $6,000 per year higher than the NBC Network.
