Per his report, a successor to Arianna Huffington has been selected:
Lydia Polgreen, a New York Times associate masthead editor and editorial director of NYT Global, has been named editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post. …
In an interview, Polgreen said it was difficult leaving the Times, where she spent nearly 15 years, but that the role at HuffPost was a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
Congrats to Polgreen, as this purview remains one of the highest-profile positions in journalism. Polgreen starts in a few weeks.
