The Huffington Post will launch a German edition of the site in partnership with Tomorrow Focus AG, a leading German digital media company. The site is expected to launch this fall.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Tomorrow Focus to launch the German edition of the Huffington Post," said editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington in a press release. "Tomorrow Focus is deeply involved in virtually every sector of digital content in Germany, and there is no one we'd rather be partnering with for this expansion."
The site will feature Huffington Post's signature mix of news, blogging, community, and social engagement, in conjunction with Focus, Germany's fastest-growing news portal.
It will be based in Munich and staffed by local journalists and writers.
"We are very proud to be part of the worldwide success story of The Huffington Post, one of the most innovative and well-known news and opinion platforms,” said Tomorrow Focus board member Christoph Schuh in the press release.
The Huffington Post currently has international editions in the UK, Canada, France, Spain and Italy, with a sixth edition, in Japan, launching in May.
