Heads up, Brian Williams. A Pennsylvania tot is gunning for your job.

"I've never ever been on live television before," 5-year-old Noah Ritter declared when interviewed by Pennsylvania's WNEP news crew at the Wayne County Fair, but that didn't stop the precocious redhead from grabbing the mic and taking over. Noah energetically talked to the camera about watching Powerball drawings with his grandpa and being "scared half to death" while riding a slide at the fair. His speech adorably littered with the word "apparently."

"I don't watch the news because I'm a kid," Noah said, but clearly he's already a pro at reporting.
