WILKES-BARRE -- He's the show stealing 5-year-old boy whose interview with Newswatch 16 made him a viral sensation. On Wednesday, the nation got to hear more from Noah Ritter aka the "apparently kid."
Noah appeared live on ABC's Good Morning America.
He's a soon-to-be kindergartner whose interview at the Wayne County Fair has made him known worldwide as "the apparently kid." It's the one minute chat with Newswatch 16's Sofia Ojeda that's made the 5 year old a viral sensation. Noah landed live on Good Morning America all because of this:
"Apparently I don't watch the news because apparently because I'm a kid apparently every time grandpa gives me the remote after the Powerball."
During the segment, Noah did what he does best: took over the interview letting GMA host Michael Strahan know who scores big with him when it comes to football.
"I know you're a part of the Giants but I used to like the Giants but my grandfather brainwashed me into liking the Steelers."
"Tell your grandfather he is wrong for that and I will not forgive him," laughed Strahan.
"Be honest, Jack, did you convince him to be a Steelers fan?"
"Yes," laughed Noah's grandfather Jack Borowski.
Noah calls his grandfather Jack his best buddy, spending the summer with him in Wilkes-Barre. The family says they could have never imagined a quick interview at the fair could make this little guy a global star.
Apparently Noah's clip has received more than four million hits so far on our WNEP-TV YouTube page.
"I think you could be a TV news reporter, Noah. Would you consider that profession when you grow up?"
"No, I'm going to be a paleontologist," Noah replied.
"Stick to your guns, Noah and I think you'd be great at anything you do," said Strahan. "He's awesome."
And one other thing Noah wants the world to know.
"It is fun to say apparently but now I'm totally over it," Noah declared.
"Do you have a new word?"
"Yes," Noah replied. "Seriously."
