In the coming months, the company plans to launch a Sunday morning political television talk show, to be dubbed Politico TV.
“We don’t want it to be a traditional Sunday show,” said Mr. VandeHei. But, “luckily we have a bunch of talented TV people around us.”
In fact, the translation of the print and Web identities of Politico, Mr. VandeHei confessed, will take some time to hammer out.
“We want to create TV that has some of the Politico edge to it,” he said. “That takes a lot of experimentation.”
