Prior to this appointment, El' Zabar has been editor, managing editor and contributor for numerous local publications. Under her editorial leadership at N'DIGO Magapaper from1993 to 1997, that paper grew from a monthly, to a biweekly, and then to a weekly schedule.

Speaking about her new role, El' Zabar says, "I am honored to become the editorial visionary for the Chicago Defender as it continues to grow and transform. We are on the verge of taking back our rightful place as the voice of the black community in Chicago and invite you to join us in making new history."
