Emilio Fede (born 24 June 1931) is an Italian anchorman, journalist and writer. He has been the director of TG1 (from 1981 to 1982), a news programme on Raiuno, Studio Aperto (from 1991 to 1993), a news programme on Italia 1, and TG4 (from 1993 to 2012), a news programme on Rete 4.

Biography[edit]

Fede was born in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, Sicily.

He started his career in the Italian public broadcasting company (RAI) in the early 1950s, and went on to become one of the most popular faces in its news dominant TV market share in Italy. Fede during the direction since 1991 to 2012 of TG4, a news programme on Rete 4, owned by Italian tycoon and former premier Silvio Berlusconi,[1] has been often accused of excessive partisanship for Berlusconi in his news management.

Fede is, at present, indicted for favouring prostitution of a minor in the framework of the so-called Rubygate scandal.

Assault[edit]

On 24 November 2010, Fede was assaulted at a restaurant in Milan's city centre by Gian Germano Giuliani, the owner of Giuliani Pharmaceuticals.[2]
