Huffington Post partners Times Group to launch India edition

US news and opinion website Huffington Post has signed a deal with the Times Group to launch an Indian edition of the website, the two companies said in a statement on Thursday.

The website is set for launch later this year.

The English-language website will bring together Huffington Post’s news and blogging platform and the Times Group’s local expertise and reach, the companies said while announcing the partnership.

Huffington Post will target India’s rapidly expanding Internet user base, which is expected to reach 370 million by 2015, according to the statement. The online paper will cover subjects ranging from politics, media and entertainment to technology, religion and lifestyle. It will also open up Huffington Post’s blogging platform “to anyone in the country with a story to tell”, it said.

The announcement was made by Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, and Satyan Gajwani, chief executive officer (CEO) of Times Internet Ltd, the digital arm of the Times Group.

“I’m delighted to launch HuffPost India, which will be our 12th edition since we began our international expansion three years ago,” Huffington said. India was a hub of global news, she said, adding: “I’m extremely grateful for the chance to bring HuffPost to India to tell the stories that matter most, and just as important, to help people throughout India tell their stories themselves, in words, in pictures and in video.”
