Columbus resident a finalist for TV commercial

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus man is now a top 10 finalist in the search for a star in a national commercial.

If he is chosen, his Aha Moment will be featured in Mutual of Omaha's TV ad.

The Aha Moment tour visited 20 U.S. cities this summer searching for stories that have moved a person to make a change in their life.

Warren Steel was chosen after the tour stopped at the National Infantry Museum back in June.

He explains his Aha Moment.

"It was just one of those moments where it just kind of hit my heart to say, 'this is something we need to try to solve in our communities, providing books to kids," said Steel.

The winner will be announced on the 15. The commercial is set to air next spring.
