'Apparently' not! #NoahTheReporter admits he doesn't know meaning of the word

Posted: Updated:
Noah Ritter's 15 minutes of fame are still going strong after a TV interview with the show-stealing 5-year-old went viral on Tuesday, and the kindergartner has apparently had enough.

"I'm tired of it," the confident little boy told TODAY in an interview that aired Wednesday. The YouTube video of his enthusiastic report on the rides at Pennsylvania's Wayne County Fair is already nearing 3 million views.

In fact, Noah said he's ready to retire what seems to be his favorite word, which he used eight times in the adorable 1-minute interview with WNEP Newswatch 16 that made him an Internet sensation. "(I'm tired) of saying the word 'apparently,'" he declared.

The budding newscaster, who was discovered at the fair by reporter Sofia Ojeda, had another confession to make to TODAY: "I don't know how to spell 'apparently,'" he admitted with all the charm and cuteness of a 5-year-old. "I don't know what it means, but I use it in, 'Wow, this is apparently annoying.'"
Move over, Jon Stewart. This kid's not only got the TV chops and a following that spawned the hashtag #NoahTheReporter on social media, he's also a comedian in the making. Still, this may not be the last we see we see of Noah — the kindergartner acknowledged that part of him does enjoy the spotlight. 


"It's like being a thousand drops of heaven," he said.
