Meet Chris Ahrens!
Chris grew up in rural Nebraska but always wanted to move to the city! He went to college to study television production at the University of Nebraska Omaha and his first job was a Creative Writer/Producer at WOWT.
After realizing the impact effective advertising has for business, Chris took his career in a direction he never imagined and became an Account Executive at the local ABC affiliate in 2010.
Chris excelled in new business and digital advertising sales. Recognizing digital as the future of advertising he learned all he could about the medium to help further his career.
In November 2017, WOWT NBC Omaha hired Chris as the Digital Sales Manager. On why being a manager was important to him, Chris said, “I get the most satisfaction out of helping other’s succeed and reach their potential.” Chris enjoys his role and looks forward to an exciting future with WOWT.
Chris is married to his wife Kristen and they have two children. The couple enjoy watching their son, Topher play basketball year round and daughter, Elliana compete in Cheerleading competitions. When they can get away for an evening the couple enjoys quiet dinners and loud indie rock concerts.
