National Hug a Newsperson Day - April 4

NATIONAL HUG A NEWSPERSON DAY

April 4th is National Hug a Newsperson Day (formerly National Hug a Newsman Day).  Each year this day gives everyone the opportunity to say “thank you” and hug their local newsperson.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary tells us that the word “newsman” dates back to 1596. They have been working hard for many years to bring us the news from around the world.

A few well-known newspersons include:

  • Tom Brokaw
  • Barbara Walters
  • David Brinkley
  • Katie Couric
  • Walter Cronkite
  • Peter Jennings
  • Barbara Walters
