Nadeen Yanes | @NYanes8News

Nadeen Yanes joined the 8News team as a Video Journalist in August 2012.

Nadeen was raised in the Sunshine State where she attended college at the University of Florida and received her Bachelors of Science degree in Broadcast Telecommunications with a Minor in Arabic Language and Literature. While in college, Nadeen worked as an anchor, producer and reporter for PBS Affiliate WUFT-TV. There she received awards such as "Best Student Newscast" from the National Broadcasting Society and the Society of Professional Journalist and Best Short Hard News Feature from the Florida Associated Press. While in college, Nadeen also interned at WESH-TV in Orlando, Florida, worked as a producer and reporter at WCJB-TV in Gainesville and participated in the Meredith-Cronkite Fellowship Program at KPHO-TV in Phoenix, Arizona.

After graduating, Nadeen immediately began her career as the education reporter at WMBB-TV in Panama City, Florida. From tropical storms to school board shootings, Nadeen learned the tricks of the trade when it comes to shooting, writing and editing compelling stories.

She now brings those tricks to Central Virginia. When she's not braving what she thinks is cold weather, Nadeen enjoys travelling, spending time with family and cheering on the Gators, Giants…oh, and Tim Tebow.

Nadeen is always looking for story ideas; feel free to email her at or follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
