Eboni is currently the host and executive producer of Revolt Black News, according to PEOPLE.
Eboni also spoke to ESSENCE about her new gig: “This franchise historically has not had a Black lens and now it will for the first time in 13 years. I’m beyond. I’m thrilled. I’m honored. It is my great hope that my presence on this show will just do it justice. Do Black women justice. Do our culture justice. I can only hope to touch on the magic that are Black women.”
