Teen won't let disabilities keep him from radio appearances –he’s there to talk about them

BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- "I'm like a reporter. I would bring in stories about people impacting the disability community or people overcoming their disability," Noah White said. "When I come in and do it, I just feel happy that I get to spread an awareness of disability."

White, who just turned 13, has been appearing on 680 AM’s “Insight on Disability” radio show monthly for the past three years.

"He's really enthusiastic, and he keeps me going, actually,” host Mike Gerlach said. "We just fell in love with him right away. He's so charismatic, and you can't dislike Noah. He's just one of those kids."

White has glaucoma and doctors removed his right eye when he was two years old.

"He has a lot on his plate, and a lot of adults couldn't deal with the things he deals with on a day-to-day basis,” mother Teira Canty said. "He's limited in certain things, as far as physical sports and things of that nature. This, he could take and kind of own it."

Noah will appear again on “Insight on Disability” Sunday night, January 8 at 7 p.m. on 680 AM.
