WOWT Offers Charity Donation in Morning Team’s Facebook Challenge

WOWT‘s morning team is now locked in a competition for the most Facebook Likes.  Whoever has the most new Likes by Friday, April 27th, will get $100 to donate to the charity of their choice.

Anchors Jim Siedlecki and Serese Cole, reporter Jodi Baker, and meteorologist Rusty Lord are competing for the charitable prize using promo videos, which have been uploaded to YouTube.  Cole, who joined the station last summer, may have the upper hand considering that her video (above) features Nebraska icon Tom Osborne.

KOLN-KGIN Promotes Flowers to Main Anchor

In Lincoln, KOLN-KGIN has tapped Vanessa Flowers to co-anchor its 5, 6, and 10 p.m. newscasts.

Flowers, who has been with the joint CBS-affiliate since November 2010, will work alongside current anchor John Fortney, effectively replacing Serese Cole, who left the station earlier this summer to join WOWT in Omaha.

Flowers has anchored KOLN-KGIN’s “Nebraska Central News“–a 9 p.m. newscast that airs on the stations’ MyTV digital subchannel–since its debut last December.

“This is a great opportunity to continue to serve Nebraska viewers,” she said of her move to 5, 6, and 10, which will bring her from Grand Island to Lincoln. “I get to work with the same great team of people, but in a different city.”

Sara Geake, who has worked as a reporter for KGIN since 2006, replaces Flowers as “NCN” anchor.

Anchor Serese Cole Moving From Lincoln to Omaha

Anchor Serese Cole said goodbye to KOLN-KGIN last week after 10 years with the Lincoln CBS-affiliate and word is that she’s moving to WOWT in Omaha. Both KOLN-KGIN and WOWT are owned by Gray Television.

Cole had anchored the 5, 6, and 10 p.m. newscasts for KOLN-KGIN and she told viewers last week that she was leaving to take a morning anchor job, a move that would allow her to spend more time with her two sons.

“While I love what I do, and I love the people I work with, I love my family, too,” Cole told viewers. “So, I’m taking a job as a morning anchor with one of our sister stations–which will allow me to spend my evenings and my weekends with my family.”

WOWT, which has been in need of a morning anchor since moving Malorie Maddox to evenings last month, has yet to confirm that Cole is joining the station but there is every indication that she is. Video of Cole’s farewell inside… Read more
