Effective June 1, Sheryl Huggins Salomon will officially step down as managing editor of The Root. According to Richard Prince’s blog, Journal-isms, (he tweeted the news and it was retweeted by The Root), Salomon told the newsroom that she’ll continue as senior editor-at-large “focusing on The Root’s offerings about history and heritage.”

Salomon has been with the site for three years, starting as deputy editor. She joined the site after being laid off from AOL Black Voices. The Root has been around for five years.

The only reason given for the departure was “It’s just time.” Salomon says she’ll be taking some time off before jumping into her senior editor-at-large duties.
