Lester Holt meets 7-year-old boy whose ‘Lester Holt’ interview went viral

Jaden, the 7-year-old boy who went viral for name-checking Lester Holt in a hilarious interview with a local reporter, had the opportunity to meet the NBC Nightly News anchor in person Tuesday — and it was just as awesome as you’d expect it would be.

Jaden melted hearts earlier this month when, during an interview at Portland International Airport, he told reporter Drew Carney of NBC affiliate KGW, “I was wondering, I didn’t really see you on TV that much …. Lester Holt? Usually you see him more on the news than you.”
