Kierna Mayo, Editor-in-Chief of EBONY Magazine and scheduled keynote speaker for the NABJ Midwest Region summit in April of this year, recently had an interview with The Combat Jack Show.
The Combat Jack Show is a SoundCloud based podcast that features creatives in our culture.
On the show, Mayo talked about things such as what makes authentic music and controlling her narrative as editor of the nation’s #1 Black publication.
As many would know, before joining EBONY, she was doing work with places such as The Source Magazine. “When I did the first cover of TLC in their life, I was 22.” Wow.
She also was a founding editor of Honey Magazine, no longer in print. “We have to exist for a Rihanna to exist,” she says about entertainment journalism needing to be in a mainstream lens.
We are very excited to meet and hear from Kierna Mayo at the Midwest Summit in April! Get your ticket(s) today!
