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.

TV addicts unite! We're excited to roll out HuffPost TV, a new site that will offer a mix of real-time reaction, news, and opinion for all of your favorite television shows, across every network and every genre. Do you love keeping up with those krazy Kardashians? Want to know the latest lead character axed from Game of Thrones? Whether you're Breaking Bad, getting Glee-ful, or harping on Homeland, we've got the answers for you!
HuffPost TV will be a destination site where rabid fans can read, rant, and rave about the shows they love, love to hate, hate to love, and everything in between. TV lovers can get the latest and greatest news about their favorite shows and engage with one another on HuffPost's community platform. As soon as the credits roll, viewers can visit the site for show recaps or engage with other TV fans to share their reactions. Notable bloggers contributing to the site include Academy Award winner Aaron Sorkin, Norman Lear, Bill Maher, Dr. Phil, and our in-house TV critic, Maureen Ryan will provide reviews. Regular features on HuffPost TV will include video highlights and exclusive clips.
The new site is edited by Jaimie Etkin and is being overseen by Michael Hogan, Executive Features editor, Huffington Post Media Group.
