Katie’s Tour: A Matthew Hiltzik Production

Dusty Saunders has a column about Katie’s tour in the Rocky Mountain News. He’s the first print person to directly tie the tour to her publicist:

“While this was essentially Couric’s idea, the journey was co-coordinated with the help of publicist Matthew Hiltzik, who had similar duties during a 1999 ‘listening tour’ that transformed Hillary Rodham Clinton from a former first lady into a U.S. senator.”

As noted in this bio: “Hiltzik helped to coordinate Hillary Clinton’s ‘Listening Tour’ in 1999.”

> Two weeks ago, an e-mailer said: “Isn’t it curious that Katie’s new P.R. man — Matt Hiltzik –also coordinated Hillary Clnton’s ‘Listening Tour’ and apparently thinks that Couric needs viewers to help her figure out the news of the day?”
