Marie Drucker (born in Paris on December 3, 1974) is a French journalist and television personality.


The daughter of Jean Drucker, a French television executive, and a niece of Michel Drucker, a television journalist, she was educated at the Sorbonne, where she received a degree in modern literature. She is of Romanian, Austrian, Polish and Algerian descent.[1]

Her journalistic career started in 1994, as a freelance reporter for such magazines as Le Figaro and ELLE, before she settled down with the Capa agency in 1997, working with them on the TV programme Qu'en pensez-vous? ('What Do You Think of It?') on the Canal+ channel. She was the co-presenter of the France 2 show Rince ta baignoire in 1999. Next, in August 1999, she joined the newly formed team of I-Télé, a 24-hour news channel which first went on the air in November 1999, with whom she stayed until September 2003. The following two years she worked for Canal+, the main station of the Canal+ Group. The Canal+ Group is the parent company of I-Télé. She then moved across to become the main news-reader on the France 3 evening news show Soir 3. At the end of August 2008 Drucker left Soir 3 to take up a new position as substitute anchor of the weekend news bulletins of the France 2 channel.

She was the partner of François Baroin, a former French Minister of the Interior,[2] but the couple were reported to have separated in April 2008.[3]

In 2006, she was voted by readers of FHM France the 22nd sexiest woman in the world.

Drucker is a cousin of the actress Léa Drucker.
