The Hill's Rising with Krystal & Saagar (or simply Rising) is an American daily news and opinion web series produced by Washington, D.C. political newspaper The Hill. The series launched in June 2018 as Rising with Krystal & Buck, with Buck Sexton as co-host until June 2019. The series is available on The Hill Hill.TV platform and YouTube.

The current hosts are progressive commentator Krystal Ball and conservative commentator Saagar Enjeti.


Rising features commentary and analysis of political news and current events, in-studio interviews with politicians, campaign staff and surrogates, political advisors and strategists, and members of the news media, and occasional live-analysis segments.

The "What's On Your Radar" segments serve as each episode's anchor. The hosts analyze current events and present commentary in a monologue format, usually organized into three or four bullet-points. This is followed by an open discussion.


In 2018, The Hill announced Krystal Ball and Jamal Simmons as presenters of a new slate of original programming to be produced by John Solomon. Ball was slated as the "progressive co-host on a morning show with a conservative co-host".[1]Rising was launched in June 2018 with Buck Sexton serving as the conservative counterpart to Ball. Enjeti replaced Sexton in June 2019.

As of October 2020, the Hill's channel averaged 1.48 million views per day on YouTube,[2][3] and has over 825,000 subscribers. Enjeti and Ball also co-authored a book, The Populist's Guide to 2020: A New Right and New Left Are Rising.[4][5]
