An 11-year-old boy has dreamed of becoming a newscaster – and on Monday, his Wish came true.

WCCO teamed up with Make-A-Wish Minnesota to grant a wish for Jack Jiang, of Beijing, China, who has been with his family at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester as he battles a thoracic spinal cord tumor.

Jack's day began at 8 a.m. Monday, and after getting hair and makeup, along with his official WCCO-TV badge, he made his debut on WCCO Mid-Morning. He then got an official tour of the studio, was instructed on video equipment and did a promo shoot.

He also got a special visit from the Minnesota United – he's a huge soccer fan – and took a lunch break to enjoy his favorite meal, McDonald's French fries.
