Kierma Mayo and Kyra Kyles head Johnson Publishing's new editorial team

(June 15, 2015) The Johnson Publishing Company formally announced today the new editorial leadership team behind the new look and enhanced print/digital focus. Kierna Mayo was named Ebony Editor-in-Chief, VP, Digital Content and will operate out of the JPC New York office. Kyra Kyles was promoted to Vice President, Head of Digital Editorial for ebony.com and jetmag.com.

In addition to defining the overall editorial direction for Ebony, Mayo (left) is responsible for maintaining the tonal and aesthetic consistency of the Ebony brand across all platforms. Kyles is responsible for all JPC digital assets, including social-media channels, to deliver compelling content that attracts users and clients to the venerable brand.

Mayo joined the Johnson Publishing family in 2011 as Editorial Director and led the brand architecture for the re-imagining of EBONY online. Mayo began her career in the 90's as an early "hip hop journalist" exploring gender issues within the art form, being named founding Editor-in-Chief of the groundbreaking Honey magazine. Prior to joining JPC, she was a creative consultant for Black Entertainment Television/VIACOM, Editorial Director of Tyra.com, and Senior Editor of CosmoGirl, a Hearst Publication. She is a graduate of Hampton University.  

Kyles (above), an award-winning multimedia journalist and content creator with both hard and feature news experience, originally joined JET as a Senior Editor for the print edition in 2011. Kyles was ultimately promoted to Managing Editor for jetmag.com, where she dramatically increased site traffic, social media reach, and expanded the outlet's lifestyle, sports, entertainment and news coverage. Kyles gained national recognition as a Tribune Company columnist and creator of the "Kyles Files," a celebrated pop culture column that was accompanied by her own weekly WGN-TV pop culture segment.
