Serese is no stranger to the Midwest. She was born and raised in Kansas City and after years of moving from state to state - has called Nebraska home the last decade.

Serese Cole has been in the television news industry for more than 15 years and says it is her love for people and telling their stories that makes her job such an amazing one.

Serese has been honored for her excellence in news writing and reporting - winning awards from the Nebraska Broadcasters Association and the North Carolina Associated Press.

She comes to WOWT from KOLN-KGIN in Lincoln, NE where she anchored the 5, 6 and 10pm newscasts for eight years and the morning show for two. Before that she was a reporter at WDAF-TV in Kansas City, MO, Wilmington, NC and Tallahassee, FL where she also graduated with honors and received her Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Florida A & M University.

Service to the community is important to Serese. She believes in volunteering her time and being an active member in her community. She has worked with a number of organizations in the past including the American Cancer Society and programs for at-risk children

Serese is no stranger to the Midwest. She was born and raised in Kansas City and after years of moving from state to state - has called Nebraska home the last decade. Serese says it didn't take her long to fall in love with Cornhusker State. She literally fell in love and married a Nebraskan.

She and her husband Todd have been married for eight years and have two young sons. When she's not at work, Serese loves spending time with her family, a good workout (when she can get it in) and every now and then - an adventurous trip to a place she's never been.
