I must be bored, crazy and tired — a truly unhealthy combination — to think that this bit of news might be of interest to anyone under the age of 100 but Kenard Gibbs, publisher of Ebony and Jet magazines (yes, they are still in publication) has done left the building for good. This is the word from the Chicago Sun Times via the AP:
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.” (Me: They told him “to get the f** out “and he said that “he was f**ing leaving anyway”) 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. (source)
I guess old boy wasn’t too adept at raising the dead.
