Nadeen Yanes joined the Fox 4 team in March 2022 as the Weeknight Evening Anchor at 6pm, 10 pm, and 11pm. She is a Florida native, born in New York but raised in Central Florida. Nadeen most recently came from the CBS affiliate in Orlando, Florida where she worked as a lead General Assignment Reporter and Fill-in Anchor for 6 years. Before that, Nadeen spent four years in Virginia covering both the Richmond and Hampton Roads markets and started her career in Panama City Beach Florida.
Nadeen is an award-winning, passionate storyteller who routinely goes back to the basics of factual, ethical journalism. Over her career, she’s covered countless breaking news stories including the 2010 Panama City School Board Shooting, the 2016 Pulse Nightclub Massacre, and several hurricanes including Hurricane Irma in 2017 and the aftermath of Hurricane Michael in 2018. Nadeen also led daily coverage during the Covid-19 pandemic and its impact on Orlando’s $75 billion dollar tourism industry and economic recovery.
Most recently, Nadeen led her own weekly franchise in Orlando called ‘Boomtown’ tackling issues that come with growth and development as 1500 people are moving to Central Florida each week. This series focused on affordable housing and the economic impact and downfalls of fast growth. For her coverage on growth and development, Nadeen was awarded an Edward R. Murrow Award in July of 2020. She also is a 5x Florida Associated Press Broadcast winner.
Nadeen is a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and is beyond excited to serve Southwest Florida, especially representing those of the LatinX community as she is proudly half-Puerto Rican and half-Middle Eastern.
Nadeen is also a 2010 graduate of the University of Florida and proudly says she was there the same four years as Tim Tebow. For fun, Nadeen enjoys reading, soaking up sunsets, spoiling her cat Leila (aka Kitty) and hunting for the best shrimp taco in town.
