Born in Peru and raised in South Florida, Virginia Lora is Transom-trained bilingual radio producer. A skilled interviewer, writer, and listener at heart, she took a roundabout way into radio through other professional fields: first conducting intake interviews with immigrant kids in detention, then living and traveling all over the U.S. with a nontraditional oral history project, and later working as an in-house writer for a homeless shelter. Eventually, a combination of an inquisitive spirit, faith in the role of the media in deepening democracy , and knack for intense engaged listening, lead her to radio. She currently lives and works in Miami, FL.
