Marcus W. Brauchli (born June 19, 1961) is executive editor of The Washington Post, overseeing the Post's print and digital news operations. He became editor on September 8, 2008, succeeding Leonard Downie, Jr.

Before joining The Post, Brauchli was managing editor of The Wall Street Journal, succeeding Paul Steiger, who had held the position since 1991. Brauchli served 15 years as a foreign correspondent, mainly in Asia, and eight years as a senior editor in New York. Shortly after Brauchli's appointment was announced, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. disclosed a takeover offer for Dow Jones & Co., the Journal's parent, and Brauchli remained as editor through the acquisition. Four months afterwards, on April 22, 2008, he announced his resignation from the Wall Street Journal, after just more than a year as editor. The Post announced on July 8 that it had hired him.

A native of Boulder, Colo., Brauchli graduated from Columbia College of Columbia University in 1983. Brauchli was a Nieman fellow at Harvard University from 1991 to 1992. He has been based in Hong Kong, Stockholm, Tokyo and Shanghai. He is married to Maggie Farley, a former Los Angeles Times correspondent. They have two children.
