Linda Hollingsead, Omaha World-Herald
My name is Linda Hollingsead. I have been a member of AAFO since 2004.
I was the ADDYs PR chair in 2010.
After completing my MA in Sociology at Wichita State University, I moved to Omaha in 2003 and secured the Research Coordinator position at the Omaha World-Herald. As the lead researcher for the Consumer Preference Study, I had an opportunity to use my research skills and gain valuable marketing and media experience.
In June of this year, I was promoted to the position of BH Media Group Corporate Research Supervisor. In this position, I work with contacts at each of the BH Media Group papers to support sales tool utilization, as well as oversee the World-Herald’s market research information and planning, competitive media tracking and market share analysis.

What do you do in your free time? Any hobbies?
I enjoy bass fishing with my husband, Greg, and spending quality time with my children, Andrew, Ben & Haley, and their families.

If you could have any job you wanted, what would you do and why?
Work on a mission project with my husband/family. We have been very blessed and hope to devote time to serving others after we retire, for the second time (we are a career military family).
