First Coast News wins several Folio Weekly 'Best of Jax 2012' categories | News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- First Coast News has won several categories in Folio Weekly's Best of Jax 2012 poll.
FCN won for Best Local TV Newscast, Best Local TV Anchor (Donna Deegan), Best Investigative Reporter (Ken Amaro) and Hottest Local Celebrity (Amanda Zitzman).
Denise Reagan, editor of Folio Weekly, said the fact that FCN won four categories shows that the people of the First Coast identify with the faces in front of the camera.
"I think it shows the strength of First Coast News in this market and their beloved characters. You have a lot of longtime anchors and a lot of people that people identify with," said Reagan.
Folio Weekly has been doing the poll for the past 21 years, Reagan said. The poll covers more than 150 categories and asks the readers about the best of Northeast Florida, including stores, restaurants, bars, news and media.
