The San Diego Business Journal has hired two new reporters — Jeff Clemetson and Karen Pearlman.

Jeff Clemetson

Editor in chief George Lurie writes, “Both are veteran local reporters whose bylines are well-known across San Diego County. Pearlman and Clemetson have deep roots in the community – and a wide network of trusted community sources and contacts.

“Clemetson, the former editor of the Mission Times Courier and a handful of other publications operated by San Diego Community Newspaper Group, will be covering life sciences, biotech and innovation and startups. Clemetson will also cover cybersecurity/AI, which is getting its own beat since San Diego has quickly become a global cybersecurity hub. Clemetson, a graduate of Chico State, will also be doing some editing at the paper.

Karen Pearlman

“Pearlman, a longtime reporter for the San Diego Union-Tribune, joins the Business Journal staff this week as well. She will be covering the tourism and hospitality beats as well as retail and nonprofits. A graduate of San Diego State, Pearlman is also an accomplished photographer and will be shooting photos occasionally for the Business Journal in 2022.”
