The channel is owned by Fox Cable Networks, a unit of the Fox Entertainment Group division of 21st Century Fox.


FSN Midwest launched in November 1989 as Prime Sports Midwest as an affiliate of the Prime Network. Originally seen mostly in Indiana, its cable coverage began moving westward in 1994. It joined Fox Sports Net and changed its name to Fox Sports Midwest on November 1, 1996, after Liberty Media sold the Prime Network to News Coproration; it wsa then rebranded to Fox Sports Net Midwest in 1999 and FSN Midwest in 2004, before reverting to the Fox Sports Midwest moniker in 2008.

On July 15, 2010, Fox Sports Midwest signed a new exclusive contract with the St. Louis Cardinals beginning with the 2011 season, ending the team's broadcasts on St. Louis NBC affiliate KSDK (channel 5).[1]
