Kurt Andersen (born August 22, 1954) is an American novelist who is also host of the Peabody-winning public radio program Studio 360, a co-production between Public Radio International and WNYC. In 1986 with E. Graydon Carter he co-founded Spy magazine, which they sold in 1991; it continued publishing until 1998. Previously he was a writer and columnist for New York Magazine, ("The Imperial City"), and The New Yorker ("The Culture Industry") and Time ("Spectator"), where he wrote on a wide variety of subjects, including the controversial Los Angeles coroner Thomas Noguchi. In 1999 he co-founded with Michael Hirschorn and Deanna Brown an online media news web site called, which they sold to Primedia; Primedia closed the site in October 2001.

In 1996, Bill Reilly fired Andersen after two and a half years from his position as editor-in-chief at New York, citing the publication's financial results. Andersen attributed the firing to his refusal to kill a story about a rivalry between investment bankers Felix Rohatyn and Steven Rattner that had upset Henry Kravis, a member of the firm's ownership group.

Andersen was born in Omaha, Nebraska and now lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife Anne Kreamer and his two daughters, Kate and Lucy.
