StoryCorps - Military Voices Initiative 2016
StoryCorps collects, broadcasts and preserves compelling stories of American veterans, active military personnel and their families through its Military Voices Initiative (MVI). StoryCorps identifies participants through partnerships with organizations that provide services to veterans and military personnel and recorded 100 interviews. Selected interviews were edited into six StoryCorps MVI segments for national broadcast on NPR and online distribution. StoryCorps produced three additional segments for distribution by local public station partners and provided them with local content they used to engage new audiences. StoryCorps shared MVI content across social media platforms and implemented a public relations campaign using traditional and new media to build public awareness of the project and highlight public media's commitment to fostering public understanding of the issues facing veterans and their families.
