Lisa Wilkinson, media personality and morning presenter on Nine’s The Today Show, has been appointed editor-at-large of the Aussie version of The Huffington Post.

Arianna Huffington, co-founder of The HuffPost, apparently offered Wilkinson the job after being impressed by one of her articles on ‘Mummy porn’ due to the 50 Shade of Grey phenomenon, reports Fairfax Media, the launch partner of the Aussie version of The Huffington Post.

The Australian version was supposed to launch today, but instead surprised everyone by going a day early and hitting the ‘live’ button yesterday.

Of Wilkinson’s appointment, HuffPost Aus CEO Chris Janz said: “Lisa Wilkinson is a fabulous addition to the HuffPost Australia team as Editor-at-Large. She’s a highly- respected and much-loved TV broadcaster through her role on the Today Show, with a strong personality, intelligence and persuasive style that resonates with many. In HuffPost Australia, Lisa has the perfect platform to further broaden and deepen her connection to audiences, and inspire others to share their perspectives on what matters most to them.”

Wilkinson said: “I was thrilled to be approached by Arianna and when you find an email in your inbox on a Saturday morning from one of the most influential women in the world well it’s hard to say no to. And I’m going to love getting my teeth back into writing again.”

Wilkinson’s appointment will not hinder her duties on The Today Show where she will continue to be a co-host with Karl Stefanovic.
