HuffPost Hawaii Will Allow Civil Beat To Expand Watchdog Effort

Michelle King

Civil Beat is about to get a whole lot more interesting.

We’re partnering with The Huffington Post to bring a new expanded news report to Hawaii. You can read all about the thinking behind the new venture, called HuffPost Hawaii, in Civil Beat Publisher Pierre Omidyar’s column here.

But I wanted to explain how it will work and how it will affect Civil Beat when the new site launches later this fall.

We’re still thinking through exactly how Civil Beat will evolve when we have the ability to share our work with millions of new readers worldwide. And, as Pierre explains, taking Hawaii to the world and bringing the world to Hawaii is really one of the great opportunities this partnership offers.

But the two sites will remain separate and distinct.

Have feedback? Suggestions?
