(Long Island, N.Y.) Reporters, press, bloggers, New Yorkers and A-listers were invited to an exclusive viewing party of Rocco Gaglioti’s Realty TV Show Vidblogger Nation at Caravan Stylist Studio on March 2nd, 2012 for Comcast.
Mr. Gaglioti established his online televised fashion magazine, FashionNewsLive.com. approximately ten years ago making him a pioneer in media on the internet.
It is not just his six-foot-three handsome physique and charm that has made him an Internet success but determination and hard work. Mr. Gaglioti started his show business career as a model in 1994.
A talent scout discovered Rocco and advised him to pursue a modeling career. Shortly thereafter Rocco sent his headshot out and he was quickly signed with Boss and Zoli Modeling Agency. The modeling career jetsetted him to photo shoots in Miami, Milan and Paris.
Rocco’s ambitions led him to celebrities and fashion working as a photographer for Maxim Magazine and Ocean Drive. Parlaying his career from high fashion model to photographer still wasn’t satisfying so he launched his own production company, RLG Productions, Inc., and set up shop at the back lot at Universal Studios.
His media empire continues to expand and his internet segments on FashionNewsLive.com provide a steady stream of compelling fashion entertainment to millions of fans worldwide. His show is ranked as one of the top ten celebrity sites around the world.
The next best thing landed Rocco working on the team of Vidblogger Nation on Comcast.
Vidblogger Nation is a social TV network that portrays innovative tastemakers sharing interesting tales of people, places and things in their hometown from a first-person perspective.
