KMSU Auction: "Make the Call, Win it All!"

The Minot State University Program of Broadcasting will host its 16th annual KMSU Auction Dec. 4. The auction will air live on MidContinent Channel 19 at 6:30 p.m., with a preshow starting at 5 p.m. Bids will be accepted by phone at that time at (701)858-4019.

The KMSU Auction fundraises for scholarships and equipment for the MSU broadcasting program. Past events have raised over $15,000 with 10 percent given to charitable causes. This year, that portion will be given to Souris Valley Animal Shelter.

“The auction is not only fun, but we’re learning future job skills because we are involved in every aspect of the event, from the beginning planning to the actual live show,” said Lexi Klein, MSU broadcasting student. “We are also helping animals at the local shelter at the same time. Some animals may even make an appearance on the show!”

KMSU promotes local businesses through various media in exchange for donations and organizes them into packages to be auctioned off in a QVC-style format. Viewers call to place bids on-air during the allotted time, with the highest bid winning the package. This unique television auction is planned, organized, produced and promoted by MSU broadcasting students. For questions, contact KMSU Auction advisors Janna McKechnie at or Audra Myerchin at
