verticals

Continuing its expansion foray into new verticals, The Huffington Post announced plans to launch a new section dedicated to the topic of divorce, MediaBistro.com reported yesterday. The new section will go live on November 2.

The new section will be headed by journalist and author Nora Ephron, who conceived the idea and will now serve as a founding editor along with Willow Bay as the senior editor. The niche section will target a large number of people, as approximately half of all U.S. marriages ends in divorce, the article stated.

"If you want to know about planning a wedding or things like that, there are so many places for people to go, but there isn't one go-to place around divorce," Arianna Huffington told MediaBistro.

The launch of this new vertical is set to coincide with the release of Ephron's new book, "I Remember Nothing" which has a chapter focusing on divorce set to release on November 9, according to another post on MediaBistro.com.
