Counting Down: The New Huffington Post San Francisco Website is Almost Upon Us – Meet the Crew

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

[Oh, here it is - they've just gone live.]

Boy, the amount of anti-Huffington Post chatter in Bay Area media circles seems to have increased lately, you noticed that?

Mmmm, perhaps it’s due to the imminent launch of the well-financed Huffington Post San Francisco website?

Could be.

Let’s meet the crew at ground control down in the FiDi/Union Square area.

Blog Editor Clare Richardson:

Associate Editor Robin Wilkey and Assistant Editor Aaron Sankin:

And here’s Editor Carly Schwartz with a thumbs up. Looks like they are go for launch.

OMG, OMG, “Huffington Post San Francisco” is Almost Here! That’s Right, HuffPo SF Launches July 2011

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

[UPDATE: Appears as if it will launch July 13th, 2011.]

You know, the debut of Huffington Post San Francisco could have happened all the way back in aught-eight, but it didn’t.

No matter, it’s coming soon, as you can see on the Twitter:

Let’s plan for it to go live on July 10th or so.

If you want to get a sneak peek of what it will look like, substitute San Francisco for Chicago here and then you won’t be too far off.

(Will the Bay Area Media Worker’s Guild approve? Likely not. Oh well.)

This is going to be a big deal - the HPSF website is going to get monster traffic.

This launch is going to be an 8.0 on the Bay Area Website Richter scale.

You’ve been warned…

Anyway, Bon courage, HuffPo SF!
