About Us

PostTV is the video arm of The Washington Post. We are your source for smart journalism that explains, enlightens and entertains.

Behind the scenes are journalists reporting the news with an eye toward new digital frontiers. Our two marquee political shows—In Play and On Background—bring you an unfiltered, informative take on Washington. Our nightly newsmagazine, The Fold, is a daily wrap that meets the needs of cord-cutters and those who want something less predictable and with greater depth than the nightly news. Our team also includes award-winning videojournalists who work with Post reporters to produce compelling, multi-faceted stories.

We're here to bring you the video that will inform your day and help you understand Washington and the world. Tell us what you want to see.
