COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - March 17 was Career Day for many elementary schools here in the valley area and News Leader 9 received a very special visit from a future news reporter.
First grader, Jacob Buckner, from Sherwood Elementary in Phenix City dressed as a News Leader 9 reporter for his school's career day. Jacob had all the reporter gear including a microphone and press pass that he made.
Today, Jacob and the Buckner family got an opportunity to stop by News Leader 9 for a tour and stood behind the scenes during the newscast.
Jacob says he's wanted to be a reporter since he first watched the news.
He's off to a great start as he ended the show with our morning anchor, Brandon Etheredge.
