Rogers became CEO of Johnson Publishing in August 2010 which of course is the mother-ship of publications Ebony and Jet magazines. As the new head of the company she’s made it her mission to expand the digital presence of both magazines. Rogers who holds a M.B.A. from Harvard University, is also committed to increasing the companies’ revenues after Ebony saw a decline in ads of 11.2% in 2010.
