Kurt Loder (born May 5, 1945) is an American film critic, author, and television personality. He served as editor at "Rolling Stone" magazine. Prior to "Rolling Stone", Loder had worked for "Circus" magazine, and before that, he had served three years in the United States Army, stationed in Germany.

Loder joined MTV in 1988 as the host of their flagship music news program, "The Week in Rock", which was later expanded and renamed to "MTV News", where he was an anchor and correspondent. He also appeared on MTV's sister channel VH1. Loder was one of the first to break the news of Kurt Cobain's death; he interrupted regular programming to inform viewers that Cobain was found dead. He was also the author of "Bat Chain Puller" (a collection of his work for "Rolling Stone") and co-author of singer Tina Turner's autobiography "I, Tina".
