huffington-post1Here’s something that you only read about almost every day: The Huffington Post is expanding once again. HuffPost has partnered with The Times of India Group, the country’s biggest media company, to launch Huffington Post India. The site — which will feature content in English — is expected to launch later this year.

“As the world’s largest democracy, and with a middle class of more than 250 million people, India is a critical destination for any global media company,” said HuffPost’s CEO, Jimmy Maymann, in a statement. “And with Indian household consumption predicted to continue to grow nearly 20% per year, this partnership gives us an ideal entry into what is expected to become the world’s fifth-largest consumer market within the next ten years.”

Huffington Post and India Group will work together to form an editorial team that will be based in New Delhi.
