Mark Hosenball is an American investigative correspondent at Reuters, which he joined in September 2010. Prior to that, Hosenball worked for Newsweek for 17 years, after working at Dateline NBC as an investigative producer. He also worked at The Sunday Times, the Evening Standard, Time Out magazine, 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

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]

Threat to national security

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 investigative journalist Duncan Campbell wrote a story entitled "The Eavesdroppers", which mentioned the existence of Britain's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ).[5] Hosenball was deported on the grounds of "threat to British national security." Although he challenged the order in court, he was denied,[6] and was deported to the United States in 1977.

Duncan Campbell wrote in 2015:

"My co-author, Mark Hosenball, a U.S. citizen (and now an investigative reporter for Reuters), was quickly slated for deportation as a threat to national security.[7] He faced a security inquiry and then expulsion, knowing only that he was accused of having “sought information for publication which would be harmful for state security.” The ban was lifted more than 20 years ago."[8]

Back in the USA

Mark 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.

Prior to working for Newsweek, Hosenball worked for Dateline NBC as an investigative producer and print journalist. As a print journalist, he contributed to many British and American publications.[9]

Awards and honours

Hosenball has won a number of awards and honours, along with a team of Newsweek correspondents, which include:

  • Overseas Press Club's most prestigious honour;
  • 2002 Ed Cunningham Memorial Award for Hosenball's reporting on the War on Terror;
  • National Magazine Award for General Excellence in 2002 for its coverage of September 11 and its aftermath;
