International Newspaper Carrier Day
Each year, one day is set aside to recognize the accomplishments of carriers who work hard to get the newspaper in the hands of our readers.
The Newspaper Association of America and the newspaper industry have designated October 13, 2012, as International Newspaper Carrier Day, a salute to the hundreds of thousands of newspaper carriers who deliver more than 44 million newspapers to more than 100 million readers every day.
International Newspaper Carrier Day is held in conjunction with National Newspaper Week, Oct. 7-13, 2012, which is sponsored separately by the Newspaper Association Managers.
A number of former newspaper carriers have achieved 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.
