Marek Fuchs

Special to TheStreet

Marek Fuchs was a stockbroker for Shearson Lehman Brothers and a money manager before becoming a journalist who wrote The New York Times' "County Lines" column for six years. He also did back-up beat coverage of The New York Knicks for the paper's Sports section for two seasons and covered other professional and collegiate sports. He has contributed frequently to many of the Times' other sections, including National, Metro, Escapes, Style, Real Estate, Arts & Leisure, Travel, Money & Business, Circuits and the Op-Ed Page.

For his "Business Press Maven" column on how business and finance are covered by the media, Fuchs was named best business journalist critic in the nation by the Talking Biz website at The University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Fuchs is a frequent speaker on the business media, in venues ranging from National Public Radio to the annual conference of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.

Fuchs was formerly editor-in-chief of, a financial website twice named "Best of the Web" by Forbes Magazine. He wrote an embarrassing chapter for a book, Over the Hill and Between the Sheets (Springboard Press, a Warner Book) which came out in 2007 and is currently writing another book, A Cold Blooded Business (Skyhorse, distributed by W.W. Norton), due out in 2008. It is about a murder case he covered for The New York Times that involved a Kansas bible college, Harvard Business School and the boardrooms of corporate America.

Fuchs, who also does private editing and ghost writing, lives in a loud house with three children and is a volunteer firefighter.
