Vice Names Ellis Jones Magazine Editor-in-Chief, Appoints Alex Miller Global Content Chief

Media and publishing company Vice Media said Ellis Jones has been named Vice Magazine’s editor-in-chief — following the resignation of EIC Rocco Castoro — and appointed Alex Miller, who previously oversaw the company’s U.K. content, to the position of global head of content.

Jones, first female editor in chief in the mag’s 20-year history, joined Vice Magazine in early 2009 before becoming managing editor in 2012. She has run the magazine’s editorial team since September 2014, the company said.

Since October, Miller has overseen content across Vice.com and its network of nine digital channels.

With her official appointment to EIC of Vice Magazine editor, Jones said, “As Vice Media has matured, so has the magazine, and I’d like to capture the attention of readers who may have a preconceived notion of what a ‘Vice story’ is and surprise them by our candid stories.”

Castoro announced his resignation Wednesday evening at an event at the U. of Chicago. “As of last night, I’m no longer with Vice,” Castoro said, according to a Politico report. “I was there for a decade and love so many people there and they did great work — but in order to be here and talk to you guys, some stuff happened, let’s say.”
