Huffington will include a mix of short newsy items and three long-form pieces that will run 4,000 to 8,000 words every issue. The first issue, which is sponsored entirely by Toyota, will feature an article written by Peter S. Goodman on President Obama’s declining relationship with young voters. So far, there is no talk of turning the newsmagazine into a print publication.
Mr. O’Brien said that the magazine would help The Huffington Post better showcase longer-form articles than it can on its site.
“We do a lot of beautiful features that can be lost” on the site,” he said.
