This just in from The Hill‘s Editor Hugo Gurdon. The publication has hired a publicist. The publication has gone without a publicist for more than a year and has had two publicists in the past.

“I’m really pleased to be able to tell you that we’ve hired an in-house publicist; Tricia Barba is due to join The Hill in the middle of June and will work full-time to promote our stories to TV, radio and the blogosphere. Tricia is currently a producer and booker at CSPAN, and before that worked in the communications shop of Sen. Amy Klobuchar, from whom she comes highly recommended.”
