It’s been one year since former CNN chief Jeff Zucker resigned over his relationship with top exec Allison Gollust — and now the network is weathering a new alleged scandal.

Jake Tapper’s executive producer, Federico Quadrani, was ousted from the news network last week, we hear, after it came to light he’d been hooking up with a subordinate, according to sources.

The news is spreading at CNN, one source said, warning, “It’s going to get out.”

Sources told us Quadrani was already under an HR-led “investigation of sorts” over rumors of an inappropriate relationship with a senior producer.

“There were some complaints. No one had proof, and these things are hard to prove. Jake was aware of the investigation,” another source told us.

Colleagues are shocked, we hear.

Despite Quandrani and the subordinate “both missing” from CNN’s Washington bureau on Friday, “they’re consenting adults and no one’s particularly feeling like this is some big scandal,” the second source concluded.

Quadrani’s Instagram and Twitter accounts still reflected he was exec producer of Tapper’s show as of Tuesday.
