Kareem Johnson | Digital Journalist


“Kareem is passionate about broadcast journalism and it shows in his reports. He consistently produces excellent work and has been an immense asset to our team.”

Maggie Szewczyk

Anchor/Executive Producer, SLU News 22: Saint Louis University Television

“Kareem and I shared one course during his tenure as an undergraduate at our university. But it was a demanding, doozy of a class — editing. Kareem was an exemplary student: prompt, reliable, tenacious, well-prepared and attentive. And in a class where grading was necessarily persnickety and exacting, he maintained a superior grade level and earned his professor’s and his peers’ respect for his keen eye and good editorial judgment. His devotion to and patience with the nuances of our language, to which I was witness for four months, bode well for his aspirations and success, regardless of the path he chooses. I recommend him with confidence and without hesitation.”

Avis Meyer, Ph.D.

Professor, Saint Louis University

“Kareem was a diligent pupil and that rare student journalist who loves covering municipal government. He readily delves into complex political and governmental issues that experienced journalists decline to take on. He is thoughtful, measured and persistent. His writing and reporting show the rewards of those excellent qualities.”
