The Oakland Post

Lauren Karmo
Lauren Karmo is the marketing director for The Oakland Post. She is responsible for managing social media, marketing The Post to wide audiences and producing content.

A junior, Karmo joined The Post in the 2019-2020 school year to serve as the campus editor. As campus editor, she covered a range of topics from investigative journalism to music reviews to satire, as well as managed a team of reporters. During the 2020-2021 school year, she stepped into the role of marketing director to fulfill the needs of The Post and focus on different aspects of journalism. She is pursuing a bachelor’s in both journalism and writing and rhetoric. After college, she hopes to continue on in the journalism or advertising field or attend law school.

She was introduced to journalism when she was in middle school, pioneering a newspaper club where she (poorly) reported on her school’s football and soccer games. Her love for it really began her sophomore year of high school, where she wrote for her school’s newspaper, The Talon. She soon became the sports editor there, and later transitioned into the role of editor-in-chief. During her freshman year of college, she took a break from journalism to explore different areas of study, but soon returned knowing it is a true passion of hers.
