The Hill, a subsidiary of News Communications Inc., is a newspaper published in Washington, D.C. since 1994.[3][4][5]


Its first editor was Martin Tolchin, a veteran correspondent in the Washington bureau of The New York Times.[5]

It is written for and about the U.S. Congress, with a special focus on business and lobbying, political campaigns and other events on Capitol Hill.[4]

In 2003, The Hill's editor in chief became Hugo Gurdon,[4] previously a foreign correspondent (New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Washington) and industrial editor at The Daily Telegraph (London) and founding managing editor of the Toronto-based National Post. Gurdon turned The Hill from a weekly paper into a daily during congressional sessions. In 2014, Gurdon left for Washington Examiner and was replaced by his managing editor, Bob Cusack.[1]

The newspaper has the largest circulation of any Capitol Hill publication, above 21,000.[4] It has a free website and 11 blogs dedicated to specific political and policy issues: The Hill's Congress Blog, The Hill's Pundits Blog, The Hill's Briefing Room, The Hill's Twitter Room, Hillicon Valley, On The Money, E2Wire, Ballot Box, Healthwatch, The Hill's Floor Action Blog and DEFCON Hill. Hillicon Valley is a policy blog about technology, E2Wire focuses on energy and environment and On the Money is about finance.
