I dunno if this counts as being in the national media, but last season on Orphan Black (BBC America), BCBS's headquarters building in Aksarben Village was used as a stand-in for a research facility in a fictional town of "Tisdale" for a quick shot.

AWESOME article about Omaha. I know this might irritate people in the forum, but the fact remains that many people on the west coast view places like Nebraska as bastions of uneducated and intolerant people who are archaic in their ways of thinking. I really hope this story gets traction and enlightens people to how complicated, strategic, and slow the progressive changes are occurring in Omaha and other places like it.

Visit Omaha tourism group hopes to make 'big splash' with Minneapolis light rail ads

Image

A local tourism group has wrapped a Minneapolis light rail train with ads touting Omaha as a great spot for a weekend getaway.

The train-size ads feature jumbo photos of such Omaha attractions as the College World Series and the Lied Jungle at the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium. The ads cover a train that runs from Mall of America to U.S. Bank Stadium, where the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots will play Feb. 4.

The train ads cost $50,000. Ward said her group did not have to pay a premium price, even though the ads will be on the train for the Super Bowl.

The ads, which debuted Jan. 10 and will run through April 29, are part of Visit Omaha's "52 Weekends" advertising campaign promoting the city as a year-round destination.

Peyton Manning is having a blast in this new TV ad for Universal Orlando. But the only O-town he mentions in the ad is... https://youtu.be/PlNoeTWSfe4

Bad news. Omaha is second worst in percentage of restaurants that are chains, according to Slate.

Pretty sure if it showed more cities, Des Moines would be on that list as well.
