SATURDAY OCTOBER 13, 2018
International Newspaper Carrier Day is held each year in conjunction with National Newspaper Week (NNW), an annual week dedicated to celebrating the impact of newspapers to communities large and small.
National Newspaper Week is October 7-13, 2018, with International Newspaper Carrier Day falling on that Saturday, October 13, 2018.
NNW is sponsored by Newspaper Association Managers, Inc., the consortium of North American trade associations representing the industry on a state and provincial, regional and national basis.
“Journalism matters. NOW more than ever.”
This year’s NNW theme is “Journalism matters. NOW more than ever.” The aim is to highlight newspaper media’s role in maintaining an informed society and healthy democracy, at a time when news media are being increasingly attacked and vilified.
The News Media Alliance produces an ad for International Newspaper Carrier day each year for members to run in their newspapers as a thank-you to their hard-working newspaper carriers.
