Tell Us Who Inspired You In 2017

This year, we spoke with 100s of inspiring Virginians impacting the community in meaningful and profound ways. As the new year approaches, help us tell the story of someone who inspired you! Big or small, we want to hear how individuals are making a difference in your community and how you want to inspire others in 2018. Your story could be used in an upcoming episode of Virginia Currents radio. Here’s how to share your story:

#1: Open up the voice memo app on your phone. (iPhoneAndroid)

#2: Tell us your name and where you live (eg Richmond, Chesterfield, Henrico) and any other brief biographical information you’d like to share. Then answer these questions:

  • Who inspired you in 2017 and how/why?
  • How will you inspire others in 2018?

#3: Email us your voice memo at

All voice memos submitted to the Community Idea Stations are subject for use in this project and future projects in perpetuity. Individuals will be contacted if their story is used in a Virginia Currents episode. Please only share information you are willing to reveal to the 88.9 WCVE listening audience.

Thank you for sharing your story. Listen to Virginia Currents online or on the air Thursdays during NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
