Patricia DiCarlo Named EP of ‘The Situation Room’

cnn-logo083110.jpgCNN’s “The Situation Room” is getting a new executive producer. Patricia DiCarlo, who had been senior producer on the program, is getting bumped up to EP.

The program’s previous EP, Eric Sherling, left to join ABC’s “Good Morning America” in November, 2009. CNN political director Sam Feist and two producers had been taking on day-to-day oversight since Sherling’s departure.

In a memo to staffers this morning announcing the move, CNN’s DC bureau chief David Bohrman and Feist had some kind words for the new EP:

Everyone who has worked with Patricia DiCarlo will agree that she is tenacious, full of ideas, full of energy, and a virtual force of nature. The energy and enthusiasm Patricia brings to everything she does will be a perfect fit as she takes the helm of the Sitroom. And we couldn’t be more pleased to have found our new executive producer within our own ranks.

Before joining CNN three years ago, DiCarlo was an associate producer on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” She was also a producer at a number of local television stations, including NBC affiliate WFLA in Tampa Bay and Fox affiliate WTTG in Washington DC.

Feist and Bohrman’s full memo is after the jump.

From David Bohrman and Sam Feist:

We are thrilled to announce that today, Patricia DiCarlo becomes the Executive Producer of The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer. In her three years at CNN, Patricia has demonstrated that not only is she an outstanding journalist, she has also emerged as an important leader at CNN.

Patricia’s 15 years in broadcast journalism have spanned important producing positions from WFLA and WTVT in Tampa all the way to the Oprah Winfrey show in Chicago. Under the leadership of CNN’s own Katherine Green, Patricia ran one of the largest newsrooms in Washington, DC as Executive Producer at WTTG-TV. Everyone who has worked with Patricia DiCarlo will agree that she is tenacious, full of ideas, full of energy, and a virtual force of nature. The energy and enthusiasm Patricia brings to everything she does will be a perfect fit as she takes the helm of the Sitroom. And we couldn’t be more pleased to have found our new executive producer within our own ranks.

Please join us in congratulating Patricia, Wolf, and the whole Situation Room team.

David and Sam
