Amy DuBois Barnett Executive Editor For ESPN’s New Media Hub

Former Editor-In-Chief of Ebony magazine, Amy DuBois Barnett will not join the team over at ESPN as executive editor to their new site that will provide coverage, commentary and insights into sports and culture surrounding the African American experience.

Prior to her latest position, Barnett worked tirelessly for Ebony, serving as the main catalyst behind the publication’s digital relaunch and complete style overhaul.

Amy has done an amazing job revamping and building the Ebony brand, so ESPN has definitely gained a great asset in her. We look forward to seeing what Amy has in store for this new website, which we’re sure will be a hit.
