Karl acted as a news reporter on the segment, covering such topics on the show as the attempted banning of social media app TikTok – and even had a go at doing the weather. 

The segment was recorded via video link with Karl joining from his home in Sydney on Friday afternoon.   

Leo caught Karl’s attention after Senator Jane Hume recently Tweeted that he was giving Karl run for his money – so the host figured if you can’t beat them, join them. 

The talented young journalist has also been dubbed ‘the next Karl Stefanovic’ by former Studio 10 producer and TV Blackbox co-creator Robert McKnight.

‘I started it in March 2019 because I enjoyed writing news articles, making movies, filming it and it came together to form 6NEWS,’ he said. 

Morning show host Karl better watch out, as the pre-teen has his sights set on a job very much like his.  

‘I would love to work at a major network – of course I’d love to anchor but I would go wherever the career took me!’ Leo added.  

The broadcast is currently live on the 6NEWS YouTube channel.
