Mark Forseth never expected Your Live Event to take off so quickly.
The sports streaming service debuted on YouTube in September 2019 with four full- and part-time workers covering Hillsboro-Central Valley athletics up and down Region 2 in northeastern North Dakota.

Forseth, who serves as chief executive officer of Halstad Telephone Co., said HTC and its broadcast partner, R&J Broadcasting of Ada, Minn., didn’t plan to expand so rapidly.
