Arianna Huffington

As the founder of The Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington has become one of the biggest names in online media. Huffington, who was born in Athens, Greece, has played both sides of the political fence, beginning as a conservative commentator but eventually evolving into the iconic liberal she is today.

Although she sold The Huffington Post to AOL in 2011 for a cool $315 million, Arianna has retained her position as president and editor in chief of The Huffington Post Media Group.
