Mutual of Omaha Announces Star of Next Spring's National TV Commercial

America Has a Say in Favorite Aha Moment by Voting for Real People With Real Stories

OMAHA, NE--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2014) - Mutual of Omaha, proud sponsor of life's aha moments(SM), has announced the aha moment that will be featured in its 2015 nationwide TV commercial campaign, to begin airing next spring. The favorite aha moment is:

Brenda from Grand Forks, N.D.
Brenda gained a new perspective on life when her and her family lost everything in a flood. Focusing on family is the most important thing, while everything else is just extra.

Voters from across the country, in combination with a Mutual of Omaha panel, have selected the favorite aha moment through an online public vote at Over the past two weeks, finalists gained votes for their moment by relying heavily on social media and community support, driven by local media coverage.

"America resonated with these incredible stories and voted for people who showcased inspiration through life's changes. We couldn't be more thrilled to recognize Brenda from Grand Forks, North Dakota in our 2015 TV spots," said John Hildenbiddle, senior vice president of brand management and public relations at Mutual of Omaha.
