It’s the hottest thing since Will and Kate announced their engagement …everyone’s talking about it. The Huffington Post-AOL merger has been everywhere you look the last few weeks. From reports of major payouts for the Huffington Post brand, to the exit of Josh Topolsky and others for not digging the ‘AOL Way’, Huffington Post and AOL continue to dominate news cycles.
Following the $315 million pay check, AOL has also poached an army of talented new writers. These are senior editors from The New York Times, New York Daily News, and The Daily. AOL is also adopting the new publishing model that the Huffington Post represents.
We are so fascinated that we’ve invited a panel of editors covering a myriad of topics including media, entertainment, technology, politics, causes, education. We also have the social media editor, social marketing and ad sales leads who will give us the scoop on what life is like at the ‘new Huffington Post’. Tickets are available NOW on the PRSA website.
