National Newspaper Week and International Newspaper Carrier Day

Saturday, October 12, 2019

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 

National Newspaper Week (NNW) is October 6 – 12, 2019, with International Newspaper Carrier Day falling on that Saturday, October 12, 2019.

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.

This year’s NNW theme is “Think F1rst – Know Your 5 Freedoms.” The theme this year focuses on the five freedoms – freedom of press, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to assemble peacefully and freedom to petition the government – collectively known as the First Amendment.
