Jaden Jefferson is an 11 yr old Toledoan who has gained national fame for his reporting appearing on MSNBC, CNN, and even FOX News. This Friday Jaden will join Ellen on her nationally televised afternoon show.
Fred LeFebvre spoke with Jaden Wednesday night at the UMADAOP Red Carpet Awards Dinner held at The Radisson Hotel as part of the 30th Annual UMADAOP Statewide Conference. Jaden received the Helen Postell Award which is presented to an African-American youth who demonstrates excellence in academic achievement and role models a drug free lifestyle.
Jordan couldn't give away any secrets but he did talk about his experience of visiting Los Angeles for the first time, and meeting Brad Pitt.
The Ellen show airs locally on 13 ABC WTVG at 4pm weekdays.
