The Top 10 Things Overheard at The Hill’s ’50 Most Beautiful’ Celebration

20140729_193245Last night at Poste, The Hill celebrated its annual “50 Most Beautiful“ list, a nod to this town’s most beautiful – or not – members of Congress, Congressional staffers, campaign aides, lobbyists, and other Capitol Hill/executive branch employees.

Many of the 50 selected were in attendance, although the five Representatives and two Senators who made the list were not. Either was White House press secretary Josh Earnest. Or FOX News’ Bret Baier or CNN’s S.E. Cupp. But CBS News’ Nancy Cordes and NBC News’ Kristen Welker were there.

Guests who entered through Poste’s entrance (and not Hotel Monaco) first stumbled upon a step and repeat for anyone but mostly those who made the list. The gathering took place on Poste’s outdoor patio amid perfect weather and included remarks from the recently announced new Hill editor in chief Bob Cusack. Guests noshed on shrimp cocktail, gourmet sandwiches, and passed hors d’oeuvre and enjoyed an open bar that seemed to reopen several times.

Conversation was comical. Especially if you stood near strangers and wrote down the laughable things you could hear them say. And with that brings us “The Top 10 Things Overheard at The Hill’s ’50 Most Beautiful Celebration.” Read more

The Hill’s Bob Cusack Named Editor in Chief

The Hill today announced that Bob Cusack has been named editor in chief. He’s served as managing editor of the paper since 2004.

Cusack’s promotion came with several other announcements, including the departure of Hugo Gurdon who’s heading to The Examiner. Hill news editor Ian Swanson will replace Cusack as managing editor, and business and lobbying editor Dustin Weaver will fill Swanson’s role. POLITICO’s Scott Wong will now serve as a senior staff writer for The Hill. 

TheHillTweet

At 9:04 am, The Hill tweeted the announcement (to the right), and funny enough, misspelled his name (thank you Fishbowl reader for the screen grab!).

The tweet has since been deleted and a new tweet issued, spelling corrected (below).

Chuck Todd Loves Musicals

Chuck Todd sat for a Q&A with The Hill‘s Bob Cusack today. Apparently the NBC politics chief and former French horn player has a thing for the theatre:

I love musicals and show tunes. As a high school and college French horn player, my favorite gigs were playing in pit orchestras for musicals and learning the words to every song in the show. To this day, I think, with just a rehearsal, I could sing the lead (probably not well) to “Brigadoon.”
