It Makes Good Cents: HuffPost Money Launches, AOL Money UK Gets Redesign

Today, Arianna Huffington announced the launch of HuffPost Money, a section dedicated to looking at the big financial stories of our time, with an eye on answering the question: how do the day's headlines affect you and your finances?

HuffPost Money is founded on the understanding that many of the biggest stories of our time -- from foreclosures and the decline in American economic mobility to the payroll tax extension and the growing student loan debt -- have a direct influence on the way we live, spend, and save.

HuffPost Money is edited by Emily Cohn, who will report to Emily Peck, managing editor of HuffPost Business. To learn more about the launch read Arianna's blog post here.

AOL UK announced an enhanced version of its personal finance site, AOL Money, with a fully integrated price comparison hub in partnership with lovemoney.com and an investing platform powered by The Motley Fool.

As content continues to be the key driver of our strategy, we are enhancing AOL Money through these partnerships, providing users with tools to deliver a first in class web experience as well as giving brands the opportunity to interact with an even more engaged audience. With a focus on consumer advice, news-led features and the latest financial products, AOL Money now includes expanded editorial content and improved design and usability.

Salut Le Huffington Post Québec!


On February 8, Arianna Huffington joined Graham Moysey, Brad Cressman and Dana Toering in Montreal for the launch of Le Huffington Post Québec - the second Canadian edition- and second foreign language edition of the Huffington Post. Starting at 6am, Arianna had a whirlwind (and very long!) day of media interviews- 21 to be exact- including La Presse, Infopresse, Chatelaine Magazine, popular Montreal radio station CJAD and Radio-Canada's TV show 24 heures en 60 minutes with Anne-Marie Dussault, to name a few!

In the midst of the media tour, Arianna addressed a 500-person luncheon on behalf of the Montreal Council on Foreign Relations giving a speech on "How social media are transforming the world." A crowd pleaser to say the least: Arianna captured the audience with her humour, infallible insight to Québec's culture and identity, and sophisticated expression of the Huffington Post model.

When the business was done, the team celebrated the wildly successful launch with a cocktail party. Introduced by Le HuffPost Québec managing editor Patrick White, Arianna toasted clients including launch partner Bell and its media agency, Media Experts, and the AOL Canada and Le HuffPost Québec team including bloggers!

Happy Anniversary HuffPost!


We'll soon celebrate the one year anniversary of our acquisition of The Huffington Post and we couldn't be prouder. Since the deal closed in March 2011, we have launched forty-four new verticals, attracted 20,000 bloggers and surpassed 130 million comments, exceeding our growth expectations, while connecting millions of users to content covering all aspects of their lives. We've increased our hyper local reach with eight local city editions and expanded internationally in key markets with the launches of HuffPost UK, HuffPost Canada, and Le Huffington Post in France. Launches in Italy and Spain are already planned for later this year enabling us to continue to cover the latest news and events with a global perspective.

Our long list of luminary bloggers provide opinions on a wide-range of topics making news today and include politicians, celebrities, academics and policy experts. Among them are Nora Ephron, Bernard-Henri Lévy, Bill Maher, Robert Redford, Alec Baldwin, Deepak Chopra, Scarlett Johansson, Al Gore, Elton John, Cindy McCain, Rita Wilson, Bill Gates, and Charlie Rose.

From politics and parenting to science and style, conversations start at The Huffington Post, and you can expect only bigger and better things in 2012. Read more about the accomplishments achieved in the last year in Arianna Huffington's blog post.

Cheers!
