ROCCO CASTORO Editor-in-Chief of VICE Media
JASON MOJICA Editor-in-Chief of VICE News
Discuss VICE’S evolution from the fringes to the frontlines.

Last week, Ad Age named Vice its Publishing Company of the Year and neatly summarized the bohemian behemoth’s acid-laced ascent: “What had started in Canada as Voice of Montreal in 1994 has now morphed into a Brooklyn-based multimedia empire that can land a deal with HBO — for ‘Vice,’ the Emmy-nominated documentary ‘news magazine’ series that was renewed this summer for a second season — while also playing with the magazine-world big boys (Vice was a 2012 National Magazine Award finalist in the General Excellence category).”

Top editors Jason Mojica (editor-in-chief of Vice News) and Rocco Castoro (editor-in-chief of Vice Media) will stroll over from their Williamsburg headquarters to tell us how, exactly, the skate-brat rag you used to pick up at Beacon’s Closet rose to such prominence that 21st Century Fox recently bought a 5 percent stake for $70 million. (That’s right, Murdoch is IN.)
