Rocco Castoro (born January 23, 1982) is an American editor and writer. He graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism.[1] After serving as an associate editor at Satellite magazine, he joined Vice magazine in 2006 as an editorial intern and was appointed editor-in-chief in March 2011, leaving Vice in 2015.[2][3] In October 2018, Castoro joined Collider as Creative Director of Collider Studios.[4]

In 2020, Castoro became editor-in-chief of SCNR, an online channel partly funded by commentator Tim Pool.
