Kierna Mayo is moving up at Ebony. The Johnson Publishing title has named Mayo editor in chief.

“In strategizing about what EBONY needs today, it’s clear that it is time to return to the maverick spirit that gave us our wings in the beginning,” Mayo said. “We don’t need permission to be daring.”

The new Ebony includes Tina Knowles, complete with crown, for the July cover. Daughter Beyonce has been sharing the photoshoot on her official site.
