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 13, 2018, as International Newspaper Carrier Day, a salute to the hundreds of thousands of newspaper carriers who deliver the news to Americans every week.
The News Media Alliance each year produces an ad for newspapers to run in their print publications to thank our hardworking newspaper carriers, without whom many people would not receive the news.
This year’s ad can be downloaded below.
