By Associated Press
The publisher of Ebony and Jet magazines has stepped down.
Kenard Gibbs left the magazines’ Chicago-based parent company, Johnson Publishing, on Wednesday.
Company spokeswoman Staci R. Collins Jackson says “it was an amicable parting.” She did not offer further details.
According to Johnson Publishing, Gibbs was appointed publisher in June of last year. He also oversaw the Ebony/Jet Entertainment Group.
The 44-year-old is a former president of Vibe magazine. He also co-founded Madvision Entertainment, which has purchased the “Soul Train” franchise.
Messages left for Gibbs were not immediately returned Thursday.
