Mitzi Miller, editor-in-chief of Ebony magazine, announced Friday that she is leaving Johnson Publishing Co. She has been Ebony editor for less than a year, assuming that role after spending more than three years as editor of its sister publication Jet, which ended its print edition.
In an announcement released by a public-relations firm, Miller said she is leaving “to pursue new ventures that include creating stories for television and film. This announcement comes on the heels of the success of With This Ring, the Lifetime movie starring Regina Hall, Jill Scott and Eve, based on the 2006 bestselling book The Vow which she co-authored.”
Miller added, “I’ve always subscribed to the principle of living in the present and remaining open to all of life’s opportunities.
“So I believe that now is an exciting time to start a new chapter in my life. It will always be an honor to have been a part of the Johnson Publishing Company legacy. Having served as the editor-in-chief for two of the oldest and most successful African American publications, I take pride in the issues the team was able to explore and expose to the readers. And now, I look forward to continuing to tell our dynamic stories in a new way with my next venture.”
