Introducing Huffington

We're proud to announce the launch of our new iPad magazine, Huffington. With nearly 500 editors and reporters who produce between 70 and 80 original reported stories each day, Huffington is our way of putting the best content together in a new, weekly magazine app for a slower, more in-depth Huffington Post experience.

Available in the App Store Newsstand today, Huffington incorporates Huffington Post's unmatched live commenting and other social engagement tools to allow for greater reader participation in richly detailed and probing narratives -- while also showcasing HuffPost's brand of Pulitzer Prize-winning feature writing. Huffington's elegant design takes full advantage of the iPad's signature Retina display, offering our audience a crisp reading experience, vibrant photography, and stunning graphics.

Each week, Huffington will lead off with a primer on the news of the week, enticing Q&As, powerful photo essays, sophisticated data visualizations, top-tier commentary, and notable quotes from the HuffPost community. Long-form journalism anchors the core of the magazine, with carefully-crafted features exploring a broad range of topics including politics, business, entertainment, technology, foreign affairs, the environment, sports, religion, and relationships.

HuffPost Partners with OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Marking the first of a new kind of content partnership, an Oprah Winfrey section will launch on HuffPost in August featuring content created and curated by writers and producers from OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. The content, which will be created specifically for HuffPost, will include articles, blogs and interactive content with advice and resources encouraging people to discover their best selves to lead happy, fulfilling lives.

The special section will tap into HuffPost's network of bloggers and community to engage with one another around the content while reaching the audiences of both HuffPost and Oprah.com.

"We are thrilled to partner with Oprah Winfrey and OWN," said Arianna Huffington. "Oprah was about engagement and authenticity long before engagement and authenticity ruled the web. And since those qualities are deeply embedded in the DNA of both OWN and HuffPost, I'm delighted that we'll be working together to enlarge the conversation on living our best lives, as Oprah puts it, just as we launch our GPS for the Soul app."

"This partnership is a great example of our innovative digital efforts to provide unique ways to engage with our viewers using online and social media platforms," said Erik Logan, who serves as President of OWN with Sheri Salata. "The special Oprah-branded experience will reach millions of passionate Huffington Post readers in addition to the loyal followers of Oprah.com," Salata said.

In the meantime, until the new Oprah Winfrey section launches, check out HuffPost GPS for the Soul for the latest tips to find inner peace and happiness.

HuffPost UK Names Political Director

Mehdi Hasan, Senior Editor (Politics) for Britian's award-winning weekly magazine New Statesman and a leading political commentator in the UK, is joining HuffPost UK as its first Political Director. Just last week, Mehdi was named second most influential British journalist on Twitter and was listed as the UK's No. 2 blogger in 2011 by Total Politics magazine's in its list of the top-50 media bloggers. Starting in July 2012, he will host the AlJazeera talk show series, The Café.

Before joining New Statesman in 2009, Mehdi served as editor for news and current affairs for UK public broadcaster Channel 4. He also worked on Sky's breakfast show "Sunrise," the BBC's "Politics Show" and ITV's "The Jonathan Dimbleby Programme." He has also written for The Guardian, The Times and The Independent newspapers as a guest columnist and co-authored "Ed: The Milibands and the Making of a Labour Leader."

Mehdi is a talented and passionate writer and will make a fantastic director for our political team. Politics drills down into the minutia of everyone's day-to-day lives and with so much happening at both a national and global level, it couldn't be a better time to expand our team and the breadth of reports, news and blogs we offer to our growing audience. He joins the team in July.

HuffPost UK has grown nearly 50% since its launch last July and recently reached 5 million global UVs, according to comScore.
