Meet Janet Noll, Senior Vice President for Flood Communications (

Tell us a little about your business. – I work for Flood Communications, locally known as Telemundo Nebraska TV and KBBX Radio Lobo 97.7FM. We have statewide Spanish and English Radio and TV stations. We have the only local Spanish language radio and TV stations covering most of the state and Western Iowa. Our English TV network, News Channel Nebraska, covers local High School sports LIVE year-round and recently had the SuperNovas volleyball team LIVE! Besides Omaha/Lincoln, we have radio stations in Norfolk, Beatrice, Columbus, Nebraska City, Hastings, Grand Island, Kearney, Sidney, Gordon and Valentine.

How did you get started in the business? – I graduated from Kansas State University in Journalism and Mass Communications and a minor in Advertising. I started off at advertising agencies and they all pushed me to television or radio ad sales.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally? – Gender is still a big issue in the Broadcast World. Moving up, I had to work a lot harder to get to the top.

What has been your most important achievement professionally? – I was on the National Board of Directors for American Women in Radio and Television for four years and on the National Television Bureau for another four years. As a member of these, I had influence on many policies and met with politicians on different women and/or broadcast issues. Fun fact, I was able to meet with President Clinton at one point.

Tell us a little about your family. – I grew up on a farm in NE Kansas. Most of my family is still around that area. My brother and nephew took over the family farm. I married my college Sweetheart (25 years later) and moved here for him from Las Vegas.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life? – There are many…I have worked for a lot of major companies and in cities across the USA. I went to work for Flood Communications six years ago and have to say, they are the best company I have worked for. They not only care about their employees, but clients and do amazing innovative marketing for clients. My only regret is that I didn’t find them earlier in my career-they are great to work for!

What is your favorite thing to do on a day off? – I do like to golf, go hiking, photography, graphics, travel and help my mom with Family history research.

What is the most unique or interesting thing about you that most people probably don’t know? – That I met with President Clinton in the Oval Office.

Who inspires you? – Have to say my mom. She is 92 and still mows her yard, has more energy than me and knows and remembers everyone. She remembers people I knew in my life that I don’t remember anymore. She is amazing.

What is your favorite quote or the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? – “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” I used to worry about all the little details and my old boss told me this….helps a lot.

If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be? – Achiever..

What local nonprofit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why? – PETA and Humane Society. I feel for animals that are mistreated or abandoned.
