The Hill Launches “Hill Tube”

Tonight at the K Street Lounge, The Hill newspaper will host a launch party for “Hill Tube,” its “revolutionary concept for online political videos” (although, we have to admit that the logo for such a revolutionary concept…


…does look eerily familiar to the very unrevolutionary [by today’s standards] Etch-a-Sketch..)


But we digress…

The invite describes Hill Tube thusly:

    With video messages from members of Congress and Washington opinion leaders, as well as constantly-updated special reports from Capitol Hill, HillTube is the newest way to stay connected.

Editor-in-Chief Hugo Gurdon tells FishbowlDC that “It’s a new brand we’re putting on all our TV products, whether they appear on Congress Blog,, Pundits Blog, or home page. We launched it on the home page last week. Most of the videos we make (about three a day now) will continue to appear on Pundits Blog or Congress Blog. The online newspaper’s home page will be used for videos that we particularly want to feature. Last week we used it to post an interview on Iraq with Sen. Ben Nelson and NBC4’s package on the 50 Most Beautiful.”
