Rodney Hawkins is the founder and CEO of Tiny Hawk Productions, a full service production company leading a shift in how we look at the world and our communities. He successfully launched his company after 12 years at CBS News where he earned three Emmy nominations and a NAHJ award for his work. During his time at the network, he covered two presidential elections, countless breaking news and feature stories across the country and around the world. One area of focus during his tenure was racial injustice and inequality. Rodney began his career as the courtroom reporter for the George Zimmerman trial in Sanford, Florida and culminated his tenure producing CBS entire coverage of the Ahmaud Arbery Murder Trial and two part documentary episodes for 48 hours. Continuing to expand his capabilities, he became CBS on-air talent after reporting, producing and writing a deeply personal series on the restoration of his family’s nearly 200-old-cemetery with ties to his enslaved ancestors. Rodney will continue reporting the series with a book and potential documentary-series in the works. He serves on the board of directors of the Emma Bowen Foundation, is a NABJ member and is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. He lives in Dallas, TX with his wife Marlowe who is a marketing executive at Frito-Lay.
