George Rodman founded the television writing program at Brooklyn College, which now offers advanced classes in comedy, drama and documentary writing. He also founded the M.S. program in media studies. He serves as the faculty advisor to The Broeklundian yearbook, and served as the adviser to The Excelsior, which was one of a pair of competing campus newspapers that was named third in the nation by the Princeton Review's America's Best Colleges. He is the author of several widely-used college textbooks, and has written for newspapers, magazines, journals, film, television, radio and multimedia programs. In a way, Rodman is genetically predisposed to an interest in mass media. His grandmother was a first cousin to, and grew up with, Hollywood mogul Cecil B. DeMille. His grandfather was a personal lab assistant to Thomas Edison and was later president of the Radio Manufacturers Association.
