Focusing on politics, policy, business and international relations, The Hill coverage includes the U.S. Congress, the presidency, and election campaigns. On its website, The Hill describes its output as "nonpartisan reporting on the inner workings of Congress and the nexus of politics and business".
The paper was founded in 1994 by Democratic power broker and New York businessman Jerry Finkelstein and Martin Tolchin, a former correspondent for The New York Times. The paper is owned by the founder's son James A. Finkelstein, who serves as its chairman. Bob Cusack serves as the editor-in-chief, Johanna Derlega as the publisher, and Ian Swanson as managing editor.
The Hill was founded in 1994 under the company News Communications, Inc. The success of Roll Call was cited as a factor that inspired The Hill. Jerry Finkelstein, the former publisher of the New York Law Journal and The National Law Journal, was the primary shareholder of the company. New York Democratic Representative Gary L. Ackerman was a major shareholder of News Communications.
The Hill's first editor was Martin Tolchin, a former correspondent in the Washington bureau of The New York Times. In 2003, Hugo Gurdon (previously industrial editor at The Daily Telegraph and founding managing editor of the 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.
The newspaper claims to have more than 24,000 print readers.The Hill is distributed for free in newspaper boxes around the U.S. Capitol building, and mailed directly to all congressional offices.
In June 2018, The Hill launched Hill TV, a digital news channel. Its YouTube channel has about 100,000 subscribers and by September 2019 it had accrued over 6.5 million views. The channel features two programs: Rising, a progressive daily morning news program hosted by Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti, and The Remedy, hosted by Jamal Simmons.
