Go! Omaha Spotlights Local Businesses on Cox Channel 1013
Local journalist, veteran anchor, mom, and Omaha-area resident Brandi Petersen has returned to TV to host Go! Omaha (go.coxmedia.com/GoOmaha). Produced locally by Cox, Go! Omaha showcases the community’s best places to eat, shop, play, and take your family, as well as highlighting unique Omaha resources.
In its first edition, which premiered November 12, Petersen took viewers behind the scenes at Baxter Arena, with insights on competition and preparation from UNO Mavericks hockey coach Mike Gabinet; provided information about One World Community Health Center, which ranks in the top 2% of such facilities in the country; recapped Get Started, a local pitching competition for start-up entrepreneurs; and illustrated the unique retail and service landscape at one of the community’s original start ups, the now established but always evolving Nebraska Furniture Mart.
“As an Omaha metro native, I am thrilled to be back in front of the camera showing viewers the best of what our community has to offer,” Petersen said. “Omaha, Council Bluffs and our entire metropolitan area is growing and thriving. Go! Omaha is the chance to bring residents the latest and greatest in food, entertainment, shopping, nonprofits and more.”
The Go! Omaha show concept was the brainchild of a diverse and talented team at Cox Media Omaha.
“We recognized the gap in local media offerings going in-depth on local businesses, nonprofits and entertainment,” says Kris Martin, vice president of Cox Media. “Thanks to the expertise of our production and marketing team, plus the business insights of our savvy media consultants, who work daily with Omaha businesses and understand the latest and greatest of the metro. We concepted the show, gauged interest from local businesses, and were off to the races.”
Go! Omaha will air a new show monthly on Cox Channel 1013. It can be seen Mondays at 7:30 p.m., Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., Saturdays at 11 a.m., and Sundays at 6 p.m. It is also available anytime On Demand.
