About Us
Q:
What is HuffPost Live?
A:
A live-streaming network that uses the HuffPost universe -- the stories, editors, reporters, bloggers, and community -- as its real-time script.
Q:
When is it on?
A:
Always. HuffPost Live live-streams original programming 5 days a week -- with highlights showing overnight and on weekends.
Q:
What hours is it live?
A:
HuffPost Live is live Monday through Friday, beginning at 10 am ET.
Q:
Where is the network based? Where does it broadcast/live-stream from?
A:
HuffPost Live operates out of state-of-the-art studios in New York, with a satellite studio operating out of HuffPost's Washington, D.C. bureau.
Q:
Who is the on-air talent?
A:
HuffPost features a rotating team of host/producers, each of whom works overlapping shifts. They include: Marc Lamont Hill, Alyona Minkovski, Nancy Redd, Josh Zepps, and Ricky Camilleri.
Q:
What kind of shows does it feature? What is the program lineup?
A:
HuffPost Live doesn't have shows in the traditional sense. Our programming is built around segments spotlighting the biggest, hottest, most engaging stories HuffPost is covering at any given moment and using them as the jumping-off points for conversations, commentary, and comedy. These segments are as long -- or as short -- as they need to be. We aren't limited by the usual time constraints of TV.

Instead, HuffPost Live emulates the online experience. No one looks at their watch and thinks, "It's 10 a.m., time for some celebrity news, I think I'll log on to HuffPost!" Instead, readers come to HuffPost to catch up on what's happening in the world and wind up getting caught up in the wide array of compelling stories we offer. You may start with a story on the upcoming presidential debate, then find yourself drawn to some celebrity news, followed by the latest viral comedy video and a segment on the benefits of napping.
Q:
So is it one long news show?
A:
No. HuffPost Live covers a wide variety of topics and areas of interest, focusing on the most popular sections and sites on HuffPost. HuffPost currently has over 60 sections, covering everything from current events to entertainment to tech to comedy to parenting, style, food, fitness, health, good news... and even divorce. HuffPost Live covers them all.
Q:
What about guests? Do you feature familiar talking heads?
A:
HuffPost live takes advantage of new media technologies to bring different voices to the conversation. We don't find our guests using a traditional Rolodex. Instead, we reach out via social platforms, see who is tweeting and Facebook posting something interesting on our chosen topics and contact them, asking if they want to come on HuffPost Live and expand on what they said.

And location doesn't matter. Anyone with a smartphone or tablet can instantly join us live. Picture a conversation about parenting with mothers in Kazakhstan, Kenya, and Kentucky, talking to us and to each other and to our users live via Skype or Google Hangout.
Q:
Where can people find HuffPost Live? Is it its own website?
A:
No, HuffPost Live is a part of HuffingtonPost.com. You can find it like you find any of HuffPost's sections -- plus, clips from the network are turned into stories that are featured on HuffPost's home page, as well as on all relevant sections. In this way, the site feeds the network and the network feeds the site.

It's important to note: we aren't trying to create a new brand. This isn't separate from HuffPost -- it is HuffPost transferred to a different medium: video.
Q:
Who is in charge of running the network?
A:
HuffPost Live was co-created and developed by HuffPost's founding editor Roy Sekoff. Sekoff serves as President of HuffPost Live, overseeing all aspects of its ongoing development, production, and programming.
