Tribune Media Services confirmed today that it will begin syndicating excerpts from The Huffington Post group blog/news site starting Sept. 12.
That was the target date TMS had cited earlier this summer (E&P Online, July 27).
The site — named after TMS columnist Arianna Huffington — includes mostly liberal commentary by prominent people from the worlds of publishing, politics, and entertainment.
TMS will syndicate news analyses and commentaries twice a week — with this content drawn from what’s posted on the site throughout the week. The material is available to newspapers and their Web sites in the U.S. and abroad.
“Newspaper editors are clearly intrigued by what’s been going on in the blogosphere,” said David Williams, president and CEO of TMS. “This new service will provide them with a wealth of provocative commentary from high-profile bloggers whose views seldom appear in the pages of newspapers.”
