Star Jones New Editor-At-Large of Uptown Magazine

Star Jones has a new gig as Editor-at-Large for Uptown, which bills itself as an upscale publication aimed at highly-affluent African Americans.

Jones’ first column will appear in the special Weddings and Travel issue, which hits newsstands on January 20th. Her writing will cover a variety of subjects from politics to entertainment.

Keija Minor, Editor-in-Chief of Uptown, is excited about what Jones’ name will mean for the brand:

As an accomplished attorney and television personality, Star represents Uptown’s readers and will bring added ‘star power’ to our consumers.

Let’s hope that’s the last time that “star” pun is used.
