Rodney Cushing, President and CEO
Rodney Cushing came into the media business with his wife Rose in 2011 with the creation of Carolina Hoofbeats magazine. Having had an extensive background in electronics and engineering, Rodney quickly became a tremendous piece of the puzzle that has formed Cushing Media Productions. Rodney's skill and ability to learn new things quickly catapulted him to Staff Photographer status within the magazines. Moving into the television production segment of CMP, Rodney has been able to hone his photography skills and grow into videography, editing and lighting for our television show. Rodney now serves as President and CEO of Cushing Media Productions.
Rose Cushing, Vice President and Creative Director
Rose Cushing always wanted to be a writer. After working many years in various types of office and management scenarios she decided to chase that dream. After taking classes at Johnston Community College she began to experiment with her writing skills and landed a job as columnist for a local weekly newspaper, The Spring Hope Enterprise. Moving into that positions she quickly became Advertising Director and Columnist. From the weekly paper Rose transitioned into a daily newspaper in Tarboro, The Daily Southerner as their Marketing Director. This opportunity allowed Rose to flex her muscles and learn the fine points of the publication industry. In this position Rose created several magazines giving her the experience necessary to begin the journey of Cushing Media Productions.
In 2011 Rose decided to quit her job at the newspaper and go into business with her husband to produce North Carolina's first equine magazine. Realizing that the equine industry in North Carolina was a $2 billion dollar industry she felt it could certainly support and grow with a magazine highlighting horses. Southeast Hoofbeats became the metamorphosis of Carolina Hoofbeats and Southeast Equine magazines and is now celebrating the beginning of it's fifth year in production.
In 2012 Carolina Hoofbeats TV was born as a way to promote the equine industry in North Carolina as well as educate, entertain and promote equestrians throughout the state. This is North Carolina's first 30 minute television show devoted exclusively to the equine industry! Now in our 4th season Carolina Hoofbeats TV has grown into a nationwide weekly show airing on CW22 out of Raleigh, ROKU on Farm and Ranch TV and many smaller networks.
In 2016 we are promoted our first annual Horses Got Talent event which was a phenomenal success! We are adding to this event this year with a sophisticated obstacle challenge on Sunday. This year's event will be held on December 9, 2017 and we hope to see you there.
We are also introducing a new equine expo to our Southeast region on August 25-27 in Lumberton, NC at the Southeastern Agricultural and Event Center. This will feature clinicians from all over the area, vendors, entertainment, a colt starting and an equestrian art show. Make plans to attend this great event today!
