This report summarizes the latest experimental results on radiative and electroweak rare B meson decays. These rare decay processes proceed through the Flavor-Changing-Neutral-Current processes, and thus are sensitive to the postulated new particles in the theories beyond the Standard Model. Experiments at e +e - colliders, Belle, BaBar and CLEO, have been playing the dominant role, while the CDF and D0 experiments have just started to provide new results from Tevatron Run-II. The most significant achievement is the first observation of the decay B → K*ℓ +-, which opens a new window to search for new physics in B meson decays.
