As a Fan, you’ll be the first to know about news & releases about Kurt Loder.

To the millions who tune in to get their music information from MTV, he's the solemn voice who has delivered the good, the bad, and the ugly on celebrities. News correspondent Kurt Loder has withstood the obnoxious Jesse Camp trend, the out-with-the-old-in-with-the-new trend, and everything in between. Loder started at MTV in 1988 as anchor of the music news program The Week in Rock, which evolved into 1515, and has covered various teen-culture topics such as drug abuse and neo-Nazi bands. Not to be pigeonholed as merely a spouter of news reports, Loder has also interviewed everyone from Madonna to the Who. Raised in New Jersey, he spent three years in the U.S. Army and, before coming back to the States, was a journalist in Europe. After his return, he wrote for {~Circus Magazine in the late '70s and then spent nine years as a writer/senior editor at {~Rolling Stone, to which he still contributes. Loder has also written for {~Esquire, {~Details, and {~Time. He also does daily news reports for MTV Radio Network. The result of his writing talents not only earned him a {~New York Times best-seller, but a major motion picture as well. His biography on the tempestuous life of Tina Turner during her years with abusive husband Ike, {-I, Tina, was the basis for the movie What's Love Got to Do With It starring Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne. He has also written liner notes for the 1990 Led Zeppelin box set and the various-artists {^We Will Fall: The Iggy Pop Tribute, among others, and has played himself in a few movies, including Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 and Airheads.
