“Adam has a highly distinguished record in publishing and an unmatched familiarity with Washington media. He’s going to be a tremendous asset to us as we expand our coverage of Washington politics to new platforms for our readers,” said James Finkelstein, chairman of News Communications, which owns The Hill. Prather will report directly to Finkelstein.
Prather takes over Jan. 1 from current publisher, Francine McMahon, who is leaving to start her own firm and has been with The Hill since 2006.
The Hill has a circulation of 24,000 – covering all Congressional offices – and is widely read by bureaucrats, lobbyists, and media personnel alike.
