Joe Concha Heads to The Hill

He'll be a media reporter.

Starting today, Joe Concha is The Hill’s new media reporter.

Concha, who will continue to be based out of New Jersey, comes to The Hill from Mediaite, where he has been a columnist covering media, politics and television. He was previously a producer and writer at Fox News Channel.

“Joe is a widely respected journalist and we’re very excited to have him join our team,” Hill editor in chief Bob Cusack tells FishbowlDC. “Joe will spearhead our coverage of the media, which is deeply intertwined with the nation’s political system. The addition of a top-notch media reporter represents another example of how The Hill is growing and expanding its audience.”

The Hill has made a number of notable changes in the past few months, including the introduction of its first subscription service, The Hill Extra, and the addition of a number of editorial and social media hires. Just last month, the publication announced it is working on a new opinion section with Jim Roberts as the project lead.
