Hillsboro, ND -- There’s been moments throughout high school sports and activities where you might say “I wish I could have seen that!,” like a last second buzzer beater shot or a funny moment during a high school assembly.  Well now you CAN see it! R & J Broadcasting, Inc and Halstad Telephone Company are announcing a partnership to bring live video streaming of sports and activities for the Hillsboro School District starting this fall. R & J Broadcasting, Inc owner Jim Birkemeyer says this partnership will not only enhance the quality of their broadcast by combining audio and video, but it will also allow them to cover more events in an online platform.
