Huffington Post Launches Divorce SectionMarybeth Sampsel
Huffington Post Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington announced earlier this week that the news site would be launching a divorce section. “If you want to know about planning a wedding or things like that, there are so many places for people to go, but there isn’t one go-to place around divorce,” says Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington.
American film director, journalist, and screenwriter Nora Ephron has been tapped to be the founding editor. You know Ephron from her work on such films as Julie & Julia, When Harry Met Sally, and Sleepless in Seattle. No stranger to the Huffington Post, Ephron originally got involved with the site when she was tapped by Arianna Huffington to write about her knowledge of the identity of “Deep Throat” from the Watergate Scandal.
According to reports, the new divorce vertical will discuss topics such as dating and raising children post-divorce. Last summer, Arianna Huffington blogged about her own post-divorce experience. See the article here.
