NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt appears to have a young fan out in Portland, Oregon. Drew Carney, a reporter for NBC’s Portland affiliate KGW-TV Channel 8, encountered a young boy named Jaden at the Portland airport who was traveling with his family to Disneyland. The two struck up a conversation.
“I don’t really see you on TV that much,” the 7-year-old said to the reporter.
Carney then asked if he had ever seen his KGW-TV colleague Rod Hill, but the boy, out of the blue, said: “No, but Lester Holt….I usually see him more on the news than you.” The boy then walked away.
Carney shouted: “Sir, you know I can probably connect you to Lester Holt.”
Perhaps we are seeing a glimpse of NBC Nightly News’s anchor in the year 2057. WATCH:
Holt acknowledged the encounter in the form of a tweet.
