On Wednesday, reports surfaced that Jake Tapper’s executive producer, Federico Quadrani, had been fired from his position at CNN in early February. According to sources, Quadrani was let go due to an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate. It was reported that the news of the alleged relationship and firing had spread quickly throughout the network.

Sources noted that Quadrani had already been under an investigation by the Human Resources department prior to his termination. It was reported that Tapper had been made aware of the investigation and acted quickly when presented with something he could not ignore on February 8th. Quadrani was then fired two days later.

The news of Quadrani’s firing has left many of his colleagues shocked. One source stated that the two were consenting adults and that no one felt as though it was a big scandal. This news comes almost exactly a year after former CNN President Jeff Zucker left the organization following a consensual relationship with his closest colleague.
CNN has yet to comment on the situation. It is unclear what the future holds for Quadrani and the subordinate involved in the alleged relationship. However, it is clear that Tapper acted quickly and decisively when presented with the information. This is not the first time that a scandal of this nature has occurred at CNN and it is likely that the network will take further steps to ensure that similar situations do not occur in the future.
