Over just over a decade, socialite Arianna Huffington has patched together a veritable media empire. Huffington Post, launched on May 10, 2005. AOL acquired Huffington Post in 2011 for $315 million. The next year, Huffington Post became the first commercial digital outlet to win a Pulitzer Prize, taking home the award for national reporting. The company has since spun off local editions in Chicago, New York, Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, Miami, and Hawaii, and international spin-offs in Canada, and Great Britain as well as French, Spanish, German, Brazilian Portuguese, and Arabic language versions and partnerships.
