As Editor and Chief Content Officer of U.S. News & World Report, Kim Castro has day-to-day oversight of all U.S. News’ editorial content, working closely managing editors and senior editors across each U.S. News section: Education, Health, Money, Travel, Autos and Civic. Castro’s main goal is to ensure those teams are producing the highest-quality journalism that’s aligned with our core mission of helping people make better, more informed decisions about important issues affecting their lives.

Previously, Castro led the Consumer Advice team, which includes consumer-focused journalism from the Money, Health, Education and Travel channels. In September 2015, she joined the Executive Committee at U.S. News, where she has worked for the last decade. Before U.S. News, Castro was a managing editor at Standard & Poor’s Corp., where she managed content creation and production of numerous equity research products. She was also head of thematic research at S&P, and in that position, she identified and developed trends, themes and investment strategies. In addition, she edited and wrote for the company’s weekly newsletter, The Outlook, covering the technology sector.

A native of Pittsburgh, she received a bachelor’s degree from George Washington University and a Masters in publishing from New York University.
