She also served as an anchor on 1010 WINS, a morning news anchor on WCBS and a reporter for WCBS-TV in New York City.

Controversy[edit]

During a broadcast of Fox News Live in January 2005, an interview between Quinn and Judy Bachrach, contributing editor at Vanity Fair, about the presidential inauguration of George W. Bush. The interview appeared as confrontational, Quinn appearing to be surprised at the response of Bachrach when she described the inauguration being too "lavish" during a time of war.[2] In the following days, a video clip of the interview was uploaded to iFilm and soon received over 800,000 views. Washingtonian's Harry Jaffe interviewed Bachrach, who said she was scheduled to appear for 10 minutes, but the segment only lasted three.
