Sports Video Group (SVG) selects Mark Rodin, executive director of Seminole Productions and professor at the Florida State University (FSU) School of Communication, for the 2013 SVG College Sports Summit Pioneer Award.  Since SVG started offering this prestigious acknowledgment in 2012, Rodin is only the second recipient chosen for his significant industry and academic media production contributions.   He will be recognized and presented with the award at this year’s SVG summit in Atlanta on May 29.

According to an SVG article about the selection, “In his 20+ years at FSU, Rodin has developed a reputation throughout the industry for being a forward thinking, risk-taker that is always on the cutting edge of broadcast technology and video production. […] Demonstrating his talent at a young age, Rodin, a 1987 graduate of FSU, earned a bachelor’s degree in media production and was named “Most Outstanding Media Production” student in both 1986 and 1987.”

CCI congratulates Rodin on this excellent accomplishment, appreciates his contributions at FSU, and feels proud he is a Seminole alumnus of the School of Communication!
