Huffington Will Produce UK Edition

Do you love Arianna Huffington’s Huffington Report? Well, there’s about to be even more to like. The media maven is set to launch a UK edition. From The Guardian:

Arianna Huffington is to launch a UK edition of the Huffington Post this summer, as the US news and current affairs website recently acquired by AOL moves to expand internationally.

The multi-millionaire, who sold Huffington Post to AOL for $315m (£195m) in February, told the MediaGuardian Changing Media Summit on Thursday that the takeover meant she could accelerate plans to hire journalists and create a UK-specific site.
