Arianna Huffington On BBC Breakfast

Arianna Huffington spoke to Simon Jack on "BBC Breakfast" about the launch of HuffPost U.K. She told him, "We're very excited to be joining a really thriving culture... and to bring the signature part of The Huffington Post, which is really engagement, as well as original reporting, aggregation, and thousands of blogs."

When asked how the site will translate to the U.K., Huffington explained, ''Everything we do here is going to be from a British perspective, with a great British team. We're offering a platform for anybody here who has an interesting idea -- who is well-known or not well-known -- to write about it."
