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 6, 2018, as International Newspaper Carrier Day, a salute to the hundreds of thousands of newspaper carriers who deliver the news to Americans every week.

A number of former newspaper carriers have gone on to achieve 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 the News Media Alliance.
