Elle.com Names Melissa Harris-Perry Editor at Large

A nice new role.

Melissa Harris-Perry has joined Elle as an editor at large for Elle.com.

Harris-Perry previously worked for MSNBC. She left the network after a public dispute over editorial control of her show, ‘Melissa Harris-Perry.’

“Melissa Harris-Perry’s voice is vital and necessary to the cultural conversation and we are thrilled to provide her with a platform to continue speaking out about issues that matter to, and directly affect, women,” said Elle.com site director Leah Chernikoff, in a statement. “Her thoughtful, incisive takes on subjects from politics, to parenting, to yes, fashion are a natural fit for Elle.com’s readership.”

Harris-Perry is a professor at Wake Forest University. She will not be working full-time for Elle.com.
