Mark Hosenball is an American investigative correspondent at Reuters. Prior to joining Reuters in September 2010, he worked for Newsweek. He started there in November 1993, after working at Dateline NBC as an investigative producer. He also worked at The Sunday Times, the Evening Standard, Time Out, and contributed articles to The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Republic. He has also done commentaries for American Public Radio.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Hosenball, an American, moved to the United Kingdom at age 17 and attended Leighton Park School in Reading, Berkshire for one year. Afterwards, he lived for three years in Ireland, where he attended Trinity College, Dublin for three years.[2][3][4]


After completing his education at Trinity College, Hosenball returned to Britain, where he found work as a journalist. In 1976, while working for Time Out, he and Duncan Campbell wrote a story entitled "The Eavesdroppers", which mentioned the existence of Britain's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). It is widely believed that this was the grounds on which the British Secretary of State ordered his deportation later that year, in secret proceedings. Hosenball challenged the order in court, but was denied,[5] and was deported to the United States in 1977.

Hosenball began working for Newsweek as an investigative correspondent in November 1993. Here he covered a range of issues for the National Affairs department. He has also written a number of stories on terrorism and the September 11, 2001 attacks on the U.S., campaign finance, the Monica Lewinsky controversy, the death of Princess Diana, Whitewater, the crashes of EgyptAir Flight 990 and TWA flight 800, and related air safety issues.
