Yassou From Athens: Introducing HuffPost Greece

As The Huffington Post has expanded around the world, I have used this space to introduce each of our new international editions. But none of the announcements I've made has had as much significance for me personally as what I have to share today: the launch of The Huffington Post in my native Greece, in collaboration with 24MEDIA, Greece's largest digital media publisher. For me, this is the ultimate homecoming, not only because this is where I and my accent were born but because HuffPost is very firmly rooted in a Greek tradition of bringing people together and facilitating interesting conversations. When we began our international expansion more than three years ago, I knew that one day HuffPost's own odyssey (to borrow from one of my compatriots) would lead us to Greece. And I couldn't be happier that that day has finally come.
