Covered in a few media outlets TODAY but, considering the historical importance of the story, not as many as you would think it should be. You can access all 28 related articles, yup, all 28 at this link.
A brief round up from a few sites.
The researchers reached the conclusions after examining saliva samples of 39 of Hitler's relatives.
Journalist Jean-Paul Mulders and historian Marc Vermeeren published their findings in Belgain magazine Knack. The Sun reported that the two did not directly receive the saliva samples used for their DNA tests from all of Hitler's descendants. In one case, they picked up a napkin dropped by a distant Hitler relative currently living in the United States.
Other Hitler relatives were located in Austria and asked to hand over DNA samples. According to the study, the DNA tests discovered a chromosome called Haplogroup E1b1b1, which is considered rare in Western Europe. (I wonder how rare this chromosome is in Eastern Europe? Why mention western Europe, when most follower of Judaism are Eastern European, where this chromosome may be more common?)
The researchers noted that this chromosome is very common in North Africa - mostly in Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria - as well as among Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews.
The African DNA is not as uncommon as many think. Anyway....
From Jerusalem Post
Some historians had previously suggested that Hitler had Jewish ancestry.
His father, Alois, was thought by some to have been the illegitimate offspring of a maid called Maria Schickelgruber and a 19-year-old Jewish man with the family name of Frankenberger
Maybe, maybe not?

Adolph's father, Alois Hitler, was the illegitimate son of Maria Anna Schicklgruber.
It is generally supposed that the father of Alois Hitler was a Johann Georg Hiedler, a miller's assistant.
There are some people who seriously doubt that Johann Georg Hiedler was the father of Alois. Thyssen and Koehler, for example, claim that Chancellor Dollfuss had ordered the Austrian police to conduct a thorough investigation into the Hitler family. As a result of this investigation a secret document was prepared which proved that Maria Anna Schicklgruber was living in Vienna at the time she conceived. At that time she was employed as a servant in the home of Baron Rothschild. As soon as the family discovered her pregnancy she was sent back to her home in Spital where Alois was born. If it is true that one of the Rothschilds is the real father of Alois Hitler, it would make Adolph a quarter Jew
Which contradicts the name given in the Jerusalem Post piece. Not Frankenberger, but Rothschild?
Would the OSS have been able to track down reliable information on Adolph whoever?
I would assume they could have. You?
And if this statement, attributed to Adolph Hitler in 1920 is correct..
Was Hitler a Zionist?
And what about this? The Transfer Agreement
'Let him (the Jew) look for human rights where he belongs: in his own state of Palestine.'
Adolf Hitler - April 1920
During the first months of the Hitler regime, leaders of the Zionist movement concluded a controversial pact with the Third Reich which, in its various forms, transferred some 60,000 Jews and $100 million---to Jewish Palestine. In return, Zionists would halt the worldwide Jewish-led anti-nazi boycott that threatened to topple the Hitler regime in its first year. Ultimately, the Transfer Agreement saved lives, rescued assets, and seeded the infrastructure of the Jewish State to be.
So, thanks to Hitler, Israel exists? The Ultimate Zionist achievement?
