Focused on the Future

Picture of Khiree Stewart

A lot of kids talk about becoming a doctor or lawyer when they grow up. Khiree Stewart knew that he wanted to report news since he was five-years-old.  That passion stuck with him when it was time for him to go to college.

Stewart enrolled at John Tyler Community College in the fall of 2008. He considered going to a four-year university but decided to go to John Tyler because of its prime location, small classes and tuition and fees that are about one-third of what he would've spent at a typical four-year college or university in Virginia.  While Stewart was taking classes at Tyler, he interned at Q94 in Richmond, where he learned the "in and outs" of radio broadcasting,

Stewart graduated from John Tyler in the summer of 2011 with an associate degree in arts and sciences and continued his education at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).  He interned at CBS 6 during his time at VCU.

In December 2013, Stewart graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications and a minor in general business.  That same month, he accepted a job as a news reporter at WHSV TV-3 in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Stewart plans to earn his master's degree, and his ultimate goal is to work for a national news agency.​
