Huffington . PARIS — Bonjour from Paris! It’s 3 a.m. Tuesday morning here. This has been a really exciting day. Every time I come to Paris — starting with my first trip outside Greece when I was 11 — I love every minute here. But this trip was special, as I’m here to announce the upcoming launch of Le Huffington Post, in partnership with Le Monde and French media powerhouse Les Nouvelles Editions Indépendantes (LNEI).
The new site, which will of course be in French, will be up and running by the end of the year, combining HuffPost’s signature mix of news, blogging, community, and social engagement with our partners’ unmatched local expertise. Le Huffington Post will be deeply rooted in French culture and run by French journalists. It will, like France itself, have a very distinct personality — its own way of approaching the world.
