CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WNCN) — Every week, eight-year-old John Wortman sits on his back porch in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with his scripts and coffee mug as he records his news shot that he calls “John News.”

“I call it John News because it’s my news,” Wortman said.

Wortman energetically welcomes his viewers to his newscast every week where he brings the latest news to his community.
