Verizon floats sale of HuffPost - FT

|About: Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ)|By:, SA News Editor

Verizon (NYSE:VZ) has talked with potential buyers to discuss a sale of the Huffington Post, the Financial Times reports.

Those are informal talks and they're in an early stage, two people tell the FT.

A sale of the site would follow Verizon Media's sale of Tumblr for less than $20M (after paying $1.1B for it in 2013).

Verizon acquired the Huffington Post through its $4.4B AOL purchase in 2015.
