Brandi (Petersen) Paul is a former television news anchor with KETV-Newswatch 7, who continues to promote positive people, events and opportunities through the world of communications. As an award-winning journalist Brandi covered historic events across Nebraska and Iowa, secured high-profile interviews, and traveled throughout the United States and beyond to share powerful stories. That mission to share inspiring stories continued at Westside Community Schools where Brandi is currently the Director of Communications and Engagement, building public trust with valued stakeholders and providing transparency and understanding with all staff and families. A strong believer in the power of community, Brandi has served as past Co-President of the Nebraska School Public Relations Association and as a former Board Member with the Miss Nebraska Scholarship Program.

Brandi continues to emcee events throughout the Omaha metro area, and assists several clients/outlets in Nebraska and surrounding states with media consultation and services. Telling stories continues to be a personal as well as career passion; Brandi writes on her blog, Anchor’s Away, and cohosts the Question Marks podcast. She loves to read and is an avid baseball fan (always cheering for the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Atlanta Braves!)  Her most cherished moments are any spent with her husband, Brian, their two little boys, Easton and Evan, and their two bull dogs, Chester and Abe.

  1. I still cannot bring myself to watch the 10pm newscast. Nothing against Julie and Rob but Brandi, you made me smile! Your quirkiness and constant smile is infectious and whether the volume was down or being in another room, just a glance in your direction would make me smile! The best of luck to you in your new endeavors. You made a very solid mark on our community

  2. Brandi, My grandma was Ruth Jones! She was beautiful inside and out! Funny thing is, she never told us grand kids she was the first Miss Nebraska. After she passed away, I found a suitcase with her crown, wardrobe and sash stating she was Miss Nebraska. There was a front page newspaper folded up on the suitcase with a picture of her on the back of a train waving goodbye. It said, ” There goes Miss Jones off to compete in Miss America”. The suitcase I was going through was the suitcase at her side in the newspaper photo! Talk about getting the chills!!!
    Thank you for your blog post! You brought back great memories of a beautiful and wonderful lady!

  3. Nice job on Go! Omaha on YYRVW TV C0X channel 1013! Just saw it after recording it. Could not find anything on the show on the web. Too bad, worth watching. Good luck on it.
