The black blogosphere is buzzing with the rumor that two media staples of the African American community are on the verge of disappearing. In February, Black Enterprise magazine announced that Ebony and Jet magazines were “restructuring to avoid layoffs,” with the cheerful sub-headline: “Johnson Publishing Co. employees told to reapply for jobs.”
Now in late April, people are e-mailing, tweeting and talking about the possible irrevocable demise of the only media brands every black person in America knows. Some are even starting a campaign to save the magazines with a subscription drive.
The only thing I could remember as a lil boy was page 43 in the Jet Mag. And now they are taling about to move the best section from the Mag.. Sorry I know there was some great articles but as a young boy all you will ever remember is the Jet Beauty of the WEEK..
