Former Vibe Editor Leaves The Root

dsmith_vibe.jpgIn June, Vibe magazine folded, leaving editor-in-chief Danyel Smith (among others) out of a job. (The hip-hop magazine has since been acquired by new owners who relaunched the pub under new management.)

But Smith seemed to be doing okay after she landed a job as executive editor of TheRoot.com, a Web site owned by the Washington Post Co., just last month. Now comes news that Smith is leaving the site after only a few short weeks.

Jocelyn Nubel, publicist for the Slate Group — which includes The Root — confirmed to FishbowlNY that Smith was leaving due to issues having to do with her commute between New York and Washington, D.C., where The Root is based. “We’re sad to see her go, but have appreciated her energy and insight and are happy she was a part of The Root family,” she added. “We are aggressively searching for her replacement and plan to fill the role in the next few weeks.”

There’s a job opening for D.C.-based editors to start vying for.

Jocelyn Nubel can get things done–no sooner had FBLA whined that we didn’t get a copy of GOOD, than she got someone in LA to burn precious fossil fuels to deliver one.

We’re grateful, even if the paper version off-gasses for hours. If the website was up to date, we’d have links for these selections.

Alissa Walker, of Unbeige, has a piece on Project M in rural Alabama.

Patrick James delivers a feel-good piece about Denise Cramsey, a co-EP of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Clearly, James bought into the “community volunteers coming together” line straight from the ABC press kit.

The best part of the mag is the back-of-the-book Provocations section. The worst part is the visual over kill in the Stimuli section–there’s so much going on, the eye just gazes right off the page and out the window.
