The Huffington Post, a unit of AOL, has been expanding internationally over the past 18 months with ventures in Canada, the U.K., France and Italy.   It is now poised to go globally this year with editions being readied for the North African Maghreb nations, Japan and Brazil, says Jimmy Maymann, CEO of Huffington Post Media in this interview with Beet.TV

Regarding the Huffington Post Live, the daily 12-hour live program, he says there are no plans to take it global but that it may well move to cable distribution as there is considerable interest from unnamed cable partners, Maymann states in this interview.
