DiversityBusiness.com/Clarke Enterprises Interested in Acquiring EBONY Magazine
Southport CT, Oct 2, 2009 / -- DiversityBusiness.com /- Kenton Clarke, President & CEO of DiversityBusiness.com, announced today the company and Clarke Enterprises headed by brother Peter Clarke are entering the race to acquire Ebony Magazine if it is put on the auction block. DiversityBusiness.com senior management is tracking Ebony’s current situation to determine if it fits within the company’s current acquisition strategy.

Ebony Magazine was published and founded by its well renowned originator, the late John H. Johnson, in 1945. Since inception, Ebony has always strived to address imperative issues that pertain to the African American community; ranging in topics such as politics, entertainment, health and beauty, career/finance, arts & culture, environmental and much more. Ebony’s magazine cover features the most current and prominent African-American figures that have made an impact within the African American and community at-large.

DiversityBusiness.com believes its technology can enhance and expand upon Ebony’s current magazine readership there by capturing new readership and advertisers through marketing and targeting all segments of the African American market. Currently, Ebony’s followers appear to be a narrowly focused segment of the African American marketplace.

Mr. Clarke believes that it is important to retain African American ownership in landmark entities such as Ebony Magazine. “It would be our intention to increase readership to their existing target audience which is crucial to garner the interest of advertisers. Ebony represents one of the strongest brands in America for the African American community. We will be determined to keep 100% ownership within that community and have the resources to make it happen.”
