Mitzi Miller new editor-in-chief of EBONY
JET magazine’s former editor-in-chief is now taking over at EBONY.
Desiree Rogers, CEO of Johnson Publishing Company named Mitzi Miller the new editor-in-chief of EBONY magazine, effective Tuesday, April 22.
Miller most recently served as editor-in-chief of JET magazine, a post she had held since May 2011. Wendy Wilson, the current managing editor of JET magazine, will now oversee the day-to-day operations of the publication.
“Mitzi is a gifted editor with tremendous energy and passion, and her strong editorial background will catapult the EBONY brand to greater heights,” said Rogers in a statement. “We are thrilled to have Mitzi in our JPC family and are excited to see the new direction she will bring to the magazine.”
“I am extremely humbled to be trusted with the responsibility of leading the No. 1 African-American publication in the country,” said Miller. “Amy Barnett is an exceptional editor, and I am honored to succeed her as editor-in-chief at EBONY. I am excited about all the possibilities as I assume my new role.”
An award-winning journalist and best-selling author of five books, Miller is regularly a featured guest on several national television programs, including ABC’s “Good Morning America,” TV One’s “News One Now with Roland Martin,” MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and CNN’s CNN Newsroom.
Miller succeeds Amy DuBois Barnett, who is leaving EBONY after serving as editor-in-chief since 2010.
