Huffington Post steps up UK recruitment

New staff and new content for the UK's Huffington Post.

Huffington Post UK has appointed new editors for its media and business sections as it presses ahead with its UK expansion.

Former head of content at Stephen Hull has joined the website as media editor and Peter Guest has been appointed business editor.

The arrivals come after the launch of its universities and education section in August and last month's launch of The Gauge, a new debate platform based around social networks.

In an interview that appeared in the September edition of Press Gazette editor-in-chief of HuffPo UK, Carla Buzasi, said she was "very keen that we launch lots of new sections across the site", adding that it had "momentum behind us and it would be a real shame just to sit on our laurels".
