Arianna Huffington has changed her departure date from Huffington Post, the online publication that she co-founded in 2005. After the publication was sold to Verizon as part of a $4.4 billion deal to acquire parent company AOL, Huffington said she would stay on until 2019. Now she is announcing that she plans to leave her position to found a new venture.
“I thought HuffPost would be my last act. But I’ve decided to step down as HuffPost’s editor-in-chief to run my new venture, Thrive Global,” said Huffington via Twitter on August 11.
