Mark Miller is managing editor of Marketplace, overseeing the portfolio of programs and digital platforms.
Mark joined Marketplace in 2014. Previously, he was deputy editorial director of The Hollywood Reporter, the revamped entertainment industry magazine. He came to Los Angeles from New York, where he was director of editorial operations at Newsweek and The Daily Beast under Tina Brown. Mark had a long connection with Newsweek, joining the magazine as a summer intern in 1985 and eventually becoming editorial director in 2009.
In 1991, Mark became a Newsweek political correspondent working exclusively on the 1992 presidential campaign. He was part of the magazine’s special quadrennial election project in which a team of correspondents went behind the scenes to chronicle the race for the presidency, producing a number of exclusives. Newsweek’s instant history, published less than 36 hours after the polls closed on November 5, 1992, was honored with several awards, including the National Magazine Award. The special election project was expanded and turned into Quest for the Presidency 1992, a well-reviewed book published in 1994 by Texas A&M University Press.
A native Texan, Mark is a graduate of Southern Methodist University with a B.A. in history and a B.F.A. in journalism. When he lived on the East Coast, he often lamented the nonexistence of decent Tex-Mex. Fortunately, that craving is adequately sated in Los Angeles, although he returns to his home state as often as he can so he doesn’t completely lose his Texas accent, which really only comes out after a pitcher of margaritas. But that’s another story.
