2015 International Newspaper Carrier Day
Each year, we recognize the accomplishments of newspaper carriers who are working hard to get the newspaper into the hands of our readers.
This year, the newspaper industry has designated Saturday, October 10, 2015, as International Newspaper Carrier Day, a salute to the hundreds of thousands of newspaper carriers who deliver to 130 million print readers every week.
A number of former newspaper carriers have gone on to achieve national prominence in business, entertainment, politics and the press. John Wayne, Warren Buffett and Martin Luther King Jr. are among the former carriers who are now part of the Newspaper Carrier Hall of Fame, which began in 1960 by the International Circulation Managers Association and now is archived by NAA.
International Newspaper Carrier Day is held in conjunction with National Newspaper Week, Oct. 4-10, 2015, now in its 75th year and which is sponsored separately by the Newspaper Association Managers.
