Arianna Huffington launches new website with Tony Blair and Bill Gates as contributors
Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington is a lady who reels in the influencers and in her latest move in founding a new news website, the World Post, she’s truly pulled off a coup.
Huffington, in association with the billionaire investor Nicolas Berggruen, will launch the site at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this month and markets it as a “stand-alone” publication but also as a replacement for the “Huffington Post’s current world section”. Contributors will include Tony Blair, Bill Gates and Pierre Omidyar, founder and chairman of eBay.
Commenting, Huffington stated:
“Collaboration is the key, especially in the linked economy… Recognising that you are not going to do the only good coverage. If you can bring your reader what other good work is being done, you improve their experience. That’s really what the heart of World Post is about.”
This, indeed, is a launch many will be watching with interest.
