Alex Heinert has been chosen by Midco Sports Network to announce University of North Dakota football, men's and women's hockey, volleyball, and men's and women's basketball games.

Heinert has been around and gained plenty of experience along the way. He adds to his resume of nine years of sports broadcasting and journalism, as well as play-by-play broadcaster, color commentator, reporter, producer and coaches' show host at Midco Sports Network and other TV and radio stations.

Prior to the new gig, Heinert has also been the public address announcer for Sioux Falls Stampede hockey, Sioux Falls Canaries baseball, and Sioux Falls Skyforce basketball.

Heinert will start his new role late July in Grand Forks. He will also host, as well as produce the coaches' shows, "North Dakota Hockey with Brad Perry" and "UND Sports Extra."
