The Hill is an American political newspaper published in Washington, D.C. since 1994.[3][4][5] It is published by Capitol Hill Publishing, which is owned by News Communications, Inc.

Focusing on politics, policy, business and international relations, The Hill coverage includes Congress, the White House and federal campaigns.


The Hill's first editor was Martin Tolchin, a former 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 the 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.
