CHICAGO — On Monday, June 30, 2014, Johnson Publishing Company, launched its new JET magazine app. The app replaces the printed edition of the magazine. The new digital magazine app will add fresh content on a weekly basis, every Friday. Readers will be entertained by 3D images, video interviews, enhanced digital maps, audio content and photography from the JPC archives.
The app will be available on all tablet and mobile platforms. There will be a free introductory offer of 30 days for all subscribers.
Actress Keke Palmer, the youngest talk show TV host of her new show “Just Keke,” is featured on the cover. Inside the issue, the actress discusses what it was like growing up on camera, her talk show idols, and dealing with social media drama.
“This is such an honor,” said Keke Palmer. “JET Magazine was always on the table in my family’s home and it’s great to be their first cover as they enter into the digital age.”
“I am excited to carry the torch of the iconic JET brand into the digital realm,” said Kyra Kyles, the newly appointed editorial director of both JET magazine app and JETmag.com. “I am confident that we can keep the legacy of the magazine for generations.”
