Desiree Rogers, the CEO of Johnson Publishing, has named Mitzi Miller the edtor-in-chief of Ebony magazine, effective immediately. She was previously the EIC of Jet magazine. Miller succeeds Amy DuBois Barnett who had been editor since 2010.

Miller moved into the top job at Jet in May 2011. Wendy Wilson, currently the managing editor at Jet will now be in charge of day-to-day operations, according to a statement MadameNoire received.

While at Jet, Miller is credited with “revamping” the 62-year-old magazine, including a redesign of the magazine and its online presence, including increased participation in social media. Prior to joining Johnson Publishing, she was the EIC of SET magazine, was an associate editor of Jane magazine and worked for Honey magazine. Her resume also includes author (she’s written five books) and regular contributor to One Now with Roland Martin on TVOne, Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC, CNN Newsroom and a number of other TV news programs.

There’s no word at this moment about where Barnett is heading, but this is the last tweet she posted:
