Portland Kid Prefers Lester Holt to Local Reporter

By Kevin Eck 

KGW reporter Drew Carney disappointed a young Portland viewer because he isn’t NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt.

Carney was talking to two kids at the Portland International Airport about what they watch on TV when the young boy, named Jaden, made it clear he didn’t quite trust Carney.

“I usually see him more on the news than you,” said Jaden who is seven. Jaden also said he wants Holt to come to his house and show him all things he’s reported.

“If he had the mic he would have dropped it right there,” said Carney.
