From the Wayne County Fair to Ellen, it's been a wild ride for Noah, and Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey was there.

Noah's appearance on Ellen is scheduled for Thursday at 10 a.m. on WNEP.

    Please enough is enough and this is way to much. Sound’s like the mother does not even have time for it. I feel bad for the other kid’s that will be in school with him.

    It’s great to hear good stories and not murders or bad things all of the time! I saw the clip of Noah at the fair being interviewed, and I thought he was really funny and couldn’t wait to see him on the Ellen Show. I really enjoyed him, made me laugh over and over! He’s a funny kid, and who doesn’t need a little humor in our everyday lives?

    Thanks WNEP for covering the adventures of Noah. It’s a fun diversion from the fire company embezzlers, all of them; the vandalism a block from the Wilkes-Barre police department of all those students’ cars, two more teachers accused of sexting or inappropriate contact with students and even more drug busts. The only down side I’ve seen so far are the tan salon addicts from our area who are at the Ellen show. I hope they aren’t recognized as representatives of this area; even California knows the sun can kill you.

    Why can’t people just be happy for the little boy?? Regardless of who they sent to California to cover the story…who cares!! The news is full of such terrible things most days. Sometimes people just need to see positive things to put a smile on their face. Good job Noah!!

    It’s typical of this area to do nothing but complain. Don’t worry – in a month or so it’ll be the same news coverage on the snow we get in NORTH EAST PA – then everyone can complain about the weather.

    I am originally from northeast Pa. Now living in Vegas and I love your coverage of Noah. It makes us laugh and smile, so much better than all the doom and gloom.

    WNEP16 sending reporters all the way to California for interviews, what a joke. How about covering the real issues at home. I’m guessing someone is trying to make a name for themselves as a reporter.

      Yes. Of course. We all would rather see murders and arson and Barry Obama on TV than a wonderful little boy spreading happiness. Go Renee!

        I believe the issue she talks about isn’t about the little boy but about WNEP16 trying to be like the big networks. WNEP16 is supposed to cover local news but they’re sending reporters to other states. I agree seems like a waste of money.

    WNEP16 sending reporters all the way to California for interviews, what a joke. Like their isn’t more important issues in our own area. Somebody must be trying to make a name for themselves.

    • Jason

      I agree, lately WNEP16 seems to be covering things connected to movie stars and talk show host, trying to be like the big network news station. Wish they would stay focused on local issues. Seems like a waste of money to send a small town reporter to other states.

    He is a cute kid.. I hope this whole experience helps him have a good life! Because apparently he’s a real character!
