Federico Quadrani Leaves MSNBC for CNN, Will EP Jake Tapper Show

By Chris Ariens 

Federico Quadrani had already passed up an opportunity to move to Washington, DC to oversee Chuck Todd’s MSNBC show, but the lure of Jake Tapper’s new 4pm program on CNN was enough for him to make the move.

Quadrani has been with MSNBC since 2009, joining as weekend EP, before taking the reins of “The Daily Rundown,” but based in New York. Currently, he is the executive producer of 10am show “Jansing & Company.”

Before MSNBC, Quadrani worked for the “Today” show from 2003 to 2009, and was at ABC’s “Good Morning America” from 1998 to 2003.


“I’m thrilled to have Federico join me in leading our new team,” said Tapper. “In recent years he’s produced incisive political coverage, but his diverse news background is equally important. From his Peabody award-winning live coverage of 9/11 in the ABC News control room through his days producing textured taped pieces and remarkable live shots at NBC’s Today, Federico has built a reputation for finding great American stories and creating compelling content. His voice will help us build the informative, engaging and provocative program we want this to be.”
