Bush Makes BBG Appointment

Veronique Rodman, a PR specialist and former television producer, was appointed to the bipartisan, nine-member Broadcasting Board of Governors, which supervises U.S. nonmilitary international broadcasting.
President Bush nominated Rodman to the BBG in October and gave her a recess appointment on Dec. 26. She replaces Robert M. Ledbetter Jr. of Tupelo, Miss., whose term expired.
Rodman received her M.S. from Georgetown University, and later studied at the Sorbonne in Paris. She is the director of public affairs at the Washington-based American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research. Before joining AEI in 1999, she worked in broadcasting, serving as a producer of ABC(TV)'s "This Week With David Brinkley" from 1982-1995. She later helped launch "Fox News Sunday."
