Marcus Brauchli, Blue Ocean’s chairman, has been co-founder and managing partner of North Base Media since January 2014. Previously he was vice president of Graham Holdings Company (NYSE: GHCO) and its predecessor, The Washington Post Co., from July 2008 until December 2013, where he developed digital opportunities for a group that included The Washington Post, the Post-Newsweek television stations, the Cable One group and Slate, a digital site. From September 2008 to December 2012, he was the executive editor of The Washington Post (the “Post”) and oversaw the Post’s budget and a newsroom of more than 700 journalists. He drove significant changes in the Post’s digital operation, which quadrupled its audience. Mr. Brauchli came to the Post from a 24-year career at Dow Jones & Co., where he was a vice president and the top editor of The Wall Street Journal (“WSJ”) at the time the company was acquired by News Corp. in a $5.6 billion transaction.
