Yahoo announces Yahoo Travel, a digital magazine for travelers
Yahoo is on a roll. Earlier today, the company announced its first TV series and Yahoo Live. We almost forgot that Yahoo also launched a new website dedicated for travelers.
Similar to Yahoo's Tech and Food digital magazines, Yahoo Travel will cover travel-related stories ranging from exotic destinations to luxury escapes.
Yahoo's team of travel writers and reporters will include Laura Begley Bloom, the former Deputy Editor of Travel + Leisure, and Jo Piazza, the best-selling author and former Executive News Director for In Touch and Life & Style. Joining the team is Yahoo's very own Greg Keraghosian. Together, they will write adventures and capture photos and videos.
To sustain the initiative, Yahoo will be doing native advertising on the website, as it has done with Yahoo Tech and other sites. So, expect sponsored stories and reports. However, Yahoo assured us that they will be as engaging as the other non-sponsodered stories on its network.
"Our goal is to make the dream of travel a reality. Dream it, see it, do it, and of course share it," said Paula Froelich, the editor-in-chief of Yahoo Travel.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
