Shane Smith is the creator and CEO of the international youth media company VICE. Smith is a renowned journalist and one of the Internet's most revered pioneers.

VICE now runs an international network of digital channels, a television production studio, a record label, an internal creative services agency, a book publishing house, and a feature film division. The New York Times referred to Smith as "a voice of a generation of too-cool DJs and musicians wearing rolled selvage denim and oversized glasses...[and] a conduit for corporate America to reach that elusive audience."

The company currently produces over 60 original, award-winning programs about news, sports, fashion, music, technology, and the arts.

Since then, VICE's online presence has skyrocketed, with its network of channels seeing more than 200 million unique visits every month and producing more than 1 billion video views worldwide. Bill Maher, a comedian and political satirist acts as the show's executive producer. In 2013, Smith executive produced and presented the HBO news program VICE, which has been nominated for an Emmy and has VICE journalists reporting from around the world.
