Jaden Jefferson is just like any ordinary 11-year-old in Toledo. Except, instead of spending the summer playing Fortnight, he's chasing down local and national newsmakers for his "First At Four" daily newscast. We talked with Jaden on The Scott Sands Show a couple weeks ago (click here to watch) and saw firsthand his passion for the news. As I said then, he often beats other local media to stories on his social platforms. Monday, during a campaign stop in Toledo, Jaden was right in the middle of the press pool media scrum yelling questions of Senator Elizabeth Warren. Warren later granted Jaden an exclusive interview and invited him to cover the CNN Debate in Detroit, in which Warren was participating on the first night. Jaden told us about that interview and gave us a preview of the debate live from Detroit on today's episode of The Scott Sands Show -- click here to listen on our free iHeartRadio app.
The national press pool seems to love Jaden as much as we do in Toledo. Since his interview Monday night, Jaden's social handles have been shared by national media, earning him more than 15,000 new followers overnight! Jaden is on a roll and we're all here for it, cheering him along the way!
