When word of the fights between locals and the U.S. Navy emerged, Rodriguez was the first Tri-State television reporter on the ground in Vieques, Puerto Rico. She then made four further trips to report on the ensuing developments.

Rodriguez supports the Cristian Rivera Foundation and is connected with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Hudson Valley, both of which are organizations working to discover a treatment for a rare brain tumor that kills young children.
