The history of HuffPost
The HuffPost is a great American website that provides various news, blogs, vlogs (video blogs), commentary and podcasts. This site comes with local as well as international editions and generates its revenue from advertising. A famous American writer, Andrew Breitbart, and a Greek-American businesswoman and author, Arianna Huffington launched this website back in the year 2005 on May 9. Moreover, Kenneth Lerer, an American media executive and businessman and Jonah Peretti, an Internet entrepreneur, were also part of its foundation. At the time of its launch, this American liberal site delivered only blogs and commentary outlets. At that time, people called it an alternative to a conservative news aggregation website, the Drudge Report.
Back in the year 2011, a leading American web portal and online service provider, AOL acquired this news website for approximately 315 million US Dollars. As a result, Arianna Huffington
moved to its Media Group and started working as its president and editor-in-chief. Earlier, the HuffPost offered only blogs from the unpaid bloggers about the field of entertainment, politics and academia. But in the last year, the website ended its blogger program. At that time, it had more than 100,000 bloggers who write for it. The headquarters of the HuffPost is in New York City, United States. At present, people call the HuffPost as the HuffPost. HuffPo is a common abbreviation for this website. This American opinion and news website is free for its users.
