Viva El Huff: The Post goes Spanish
Online news and opinion website Huffington Post launching a Spanish edition.
Viva El Huff! The Huffington Post is launching a Spanish language site.
Huffington stayed on as head of the media group behind the sites, which blend news, politics, celebrity and opinion. She has said she wants to launch a large number of sites in different languages -- "Brazil, Italy, Turkey and Spain. Later, we will move on to Germany, Australia, New Zealand" -- as part of her "global plan".
Still, some wonder how long she can keep spending money that AOL isn't making. But given the lastest announcements, it doesn't seem to be an issue right now.
The Canadian Press has the details:
MADRID, Spain -- The Huffington Post will launch a new site in Spanish early next year, to be called El Huffington Post.
The move is the latest by The Huffington Post to extend its reach outside the U.S. market.
This year it launched versions for the United Kingdom and Canada. Monday's statement says that the previously announced French language sites Le Huffington Post France and Le Huffington Post Quebec will launch soon.
It says El Huffington Post is recruiting journalists with plans to start the site the first quarter of 2012.
