Hennessy is one of four finalists for the “Today” show’s Kid Reporter Contest, and his reporting chops have landed him multiple appearances on the morning program.
"I was really happy and really excited because I couldn't believe I actually made it this far," he said on the “Today” show.
Friday night he gets a shot at interviewing a star.
Little Jack is a reluctant star. His aunt had to urge him to submit a one-minute submission for the contest.
His piece about gardening, however, warmed the hearts of viewers who chose Hennessey’s video from among thousands of entries.
Viewers then voted his segment up to the top.
The Gay Harden interview is a final test for Hennessy. The segment will air on Monday’s today show and the winner of the contest will be announce on Nov. 12.
If Hennessy wins, he’ll become a reporter for the show.
