"Apparently" Kid Noah Ritter Steals the Show at County Fair, Owns TV Interview
"Apparently" this kid has never been on live TV before—but he's more than ready for his close-up! Young Noah Ritter, an adorable, precocious 5-year-old, stole the show at the Wayne County Fair in Pennsylvania this week when a local news reporter stopped him to ask about a ride he'd just been on. A natural in front of the camera, Noah grabbed the mic and gave what may be the best kid-on-the-street interview ever.
"Apparently I've never been on live television before. Apparently sometimes I don't watch the news, because I'm a kid, and apparently every time, apparently Grandpa just gives me the remote after we watch the Powerball," he said confidently.
He went on to talk about the rides at the fair, telling Newswatch 16's Sofia Ojeda, "Apparently I already went down the super slide. When I went down, I was scared half to death! I just freaked out!"
Noah's interview was posted on WNEP-TV's YouTube channel on Monday, Aug. 4, and quickly got picked up all around the web. Even the Today show got in on the action, with Al Roker calling the kid "this generation's Mason Reese." (Reese was a child actor in the 1970s who became famous for his work in commercials.)
"Little #Noah is going VIRAL!!!" Ojeda tweeted on Aug. 5, adding the hashtag "#NoahTheReporter."
