Patrick Nolan honored for leading "Best Anchor Team"

CREATED Aug 1, 2014

 WFTX - Fox 4 anchor Patrick Nolan is being honored for leading Southwest Florida's "Best Anchor Team" again!

The readers of Southwest Florida's largest newspaper, The News-Press, recently voted the Fox 4 anchor team "The Best of Southwest Florida' in the paper's annual poll.

The honor was a fitting send-off for Patrick's recently departed co-anchor Emily Dishnow.

She and Patrick received the news just days after Emily left the station to be a stay-at-home mom.

This marks the third year in a row Patrick and Emily were named "Southwest Florida's Best Anchor Team" in the poll which involves thousands of votes.

Patrick has also won the honor with two previous co-anchors in years past. 

Patrick and Emily - along with the other winners and runners-up of this year's "Best of Southwest Florida" awards will be recognized at a special ceremony at the News-Press headquarters in the Fort Myers River District on September 8th.

The paper will also produce a "Best of Southwest Florida" winners section its August 3rd edition this Sunday.
