Meet the CRMA Member: Omaha Magazine

Meet the Publisher

Publisher Todd Lemke grew up in Papillion, Nebraska, and graduated from University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1981 with a degree in journalism. Two years later he started a magazine called Omaha Today, which helped to springboard a 35-year career in magazine publishing. Omaha Magazine, under Todd’s leadership, focuses on the people and the positives that make Omaha a great place to live. Those positives include the philanthropic and cultural events around town as well as the abundance of business opportunities. Todd credits his staff with creating an award-winning magazine that has been recognized with regional Great Plains Journalism Awards, state AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) awards, and local Omaha Press Club awards.

They started at least a dozen publications over Todd’s 35 years in this fascinating, fast-paced industry. Their current core of six titles is led by their award-winning flagship product – Omaha Magazine. Todd says, “It is an honor to be even a small part of weaving the common thread that becomes the very fabric of our wonderful community.”
