Le Huffington Post Quebec goes live today featuring HuffPost’s unique combination of original reporting, aggregation, and social engagement tools. The announcement was made today by Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington and Graham Moysey, general manager of AOL Canada.
Le Huffington Post Quebec combines HuffPost’s powerful engagement platform with local expertise from a talented Quebec-based editorial team led by the site’s managing editor, Patrick White. Jean-Philippe Cipriani is news editor and Tamy-Emma Pepin is managing blog editor. Bloggers who will be contributing to the site include: Michel Martelly, Yves-François Blanchet, Michel Kelly Gagnon, Julius Grey and Anne Marie Withenshaw, and more.
According to Moysey, “Debuting in Quebec is the next logical step for us following on the heels of our successful Huffington Post Canada launch in May. The Huffington Post Canada has more than 2.2 million unique visitors a month – 268,000 UV’s from Quebec alone – and the huffingtonpost.ca site has grown 162 percent since launch. We look forward to bringing to Quebec the smart news, real-time opinion, and vibrant social nature of the Huffington Post platform.”
