The Hill is a non-partisan American political newspaper published in Washington, D.C. since 1994.[3][4][5] It is owned by News Communications, Inc., which is owned by Capitol Hill Publishing, Chairman James A. Finkelstein.

Focusing on the intersection of politics, policy, business and international relations, The Hill coverage includes Congress, the White House and federal campaigns. It has policy verticals on Cybersecurity, Defense, Energy & Environment, Finance, Healthcare, National Security, Technology, and Transportation.

History[edit]

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

In 2003, Hugo Gurdon,[4] who was previously a foreign correspondent (New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Washington, industrial editor at The Daily Telegraph (London) and founding managing editor of the Toronto-based National Post, became The Hill's editor in chief. 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, with more than 24,000 print readers.[4] It also operates a news website which features six blogs dedicated to specific political and policy issues: Ballot Box, Blog Briefing Room, Congress Blog, Floor Action, In the Know and Twitter Room.
