Huffington Post lands Willow Bay

May 31, 2007

See? We told you that the Huffington Post was about to enlist some new talent.

Former CNN anchor Willow Bay has signed on as an editor-at-large at as part of a recent expansion at the news-and-blogs site run by political commentator and one-time California gubernatorial candidate Arianna Huffington.

Bay, who is married to Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger, will oversee the site’s new lifestyle section, called Living Now, and will “help shape the site’s recent content expansion beyond its noted politics coverage, on the business, media and entertainment pages,” according to a statement.

Bay, a former model, currently hosts and produces a feature series called “Spotlight 25″ on Lifetime Television, a cable network partly owned by Disney.
