Today, the Huffington Post launched its LatinoVoices channel. Site founder and the president/editor-in-chief of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group introduced the new initiative sharing her own experience, writing: "As an immigrant to this country I know that the immigrant spirit and resilience that are at the heart of the American experience can help us overcome whatever obstacles lie ahead and truly move mountains."
This represents the second recent multicultural-based expansion for the Huffington Post. The site, which was acquired by AOL in February, launched its HuffPost BlackVoices only last week.
HuffPost LatinoVoices, writes Huffington, "will provide an authentic Hispanic-American perspective on current events and cultural trends in the United States, Central and South America, and the rest of the world. From politics, education and immigration to culture, celebrity and health, the site will feature our signature mix of original reporting, comprehensive curation, investigative journalism and real-time opinion." She also references the strong entrepreneurial movement in the community, referencing the high rate (twice the national average) at which Hispanics opened businesses from 2002 through 2007.
Huffington says that the site will be overseen by Managing Editor Miguel Ferrer and Senior News Editor Gabriel Lerner.
Among the launch-day lineup is a piece by Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.
