  • Bio:

    It's not your mom and dad's (or grandmom and granddad's) Jet magazine anymore. And we have Jet magazine's editor-in-chief, Mitzi Miller, to thank for that. Miller managed the miniature magazine's first complete redesign in its 62 years of publication. That's kind of a big deal. The new Jet now features more original reporting, new fonts, larger photos and brighter colors. It even has a digital version for iPhones/iPads and Android phones and tablets. Miller is also an award-winning author who co-wrote The Angry Black Woman's Guide to Life and The Vow. She's also behind the three-book fiction series Hotlanta.
