Swiss journalist, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche from 2001 until 2004 and again since November 2006. Under his leadership, the magazine took a distinct turn towards the political right. In 2015, he joined the conservative Swiss party SVP and on 26 February 2015 announced his candidacy for the national parliament election on 18 October 2015, in which he achieved the highest number of votes among the candidates on the same party list.

In 2004 he became editor-in-chief for two and a half years of the German newspaper Die Welt.

Köppel is married with Bich-Tien Ton, born ca. 1975, daughter of Vietnamese refugees, a former UBS banker. The couple has two sons, Karl Lukas (born August 2009) and Viktor Robert (born 2011), and a daughter Anna Magdalena, born 14 April 2014.
