Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Valerie Chinn needs your vote!

'Today's Woman,' a Louisville-based magazine that covers women in the community, is taking votes on the city's most admired women.

"It's your turn to vote for the women you admire in the Louisville/Southern Indiana area," the magazine proclaims. "These women were nominated for the 14th Today’s Woman Most Admired Woman Award by the editorial staff of Today’s Woman. Voting will end March 21st at noon."

WDRB's own Valerie Chinn is up for the award for most admired woman in the media -- and we may be kind of biased, but we think she deserves the award.

Readers can vote once a day, every day, until March 21!

Ever since she took her first speech class in middle school and several journalism classes in high school, Valerie Chinn knew she wanted to pursue a career in journalism and later narrowed that down to TV.

She joined WDRB in June of 2001 and currently co-anchors WDRB News @ 11:30 and Noon. For more than six years, she anchored the weekends. Previously, she worked as a weekend anchor in Duluth, Minnesota; Austin, Minnesota; and Columbia, Missouri.

She's a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism and has won numerous awards including a regional Edward R. Murrow Award and an Emmy Award. She is a West Coast native and grew up in Beaverton, Oregon.

She currently serves on the Northeast Y Board. Her favorite stories include sky diving at 13,500 feet with the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights and traveling to Ethiopia to cover a local church's mission work.

Valerie, her husband, their three children and their long haired Chihuahua love living in Louisville.
