WASHINGTON (CNN) - Child journalist Damon Weaver, who landed a coveted interview with President Obama, said Wednesday that CNN's Wolf Blitzer is his role model.

In an interview with Time magazine after his interview with the president and a subsequent media blitz, 11-year-old Weaver said he didn't get a chance to tell Blitzer that he wants to be like him after his interview on CNN because "it was my first time meeting him and I tried to answer his questions."

"I would like to be Wolf Blitzer," Weaver told Time in an interview published on Wednesday.

And what did he think of his interview with Blitzer?

"It was very fun," said Weaver. "He was nice. He was asking me questions like, 'What was it like with the President? How could I get in touch with him? And can you put in a good word for me?'"
