The day is scheduled in association with the Newspaper Association Managers' National Newspaper Week. International Newspaper Carrier Day is an annual observance created by the Newspaper Association of America and celebrated in October.
Each year, we recognize the accomplishments of newspaper carriers who are working hard to get the newspaper into the hands of our readers. The News Media Alliance produces ads for newspapers to run in their print publications each year to thank our hardworking newspaper carriers, without whom many people would not receive the news.
There is also a Newspaper Carrier Day, origin unknown, on September 4 annually. It honors Barney Flaherty, the first newspaper carrier (or paperboy) hired in 1833, as well as all current newspaper carriers. It is celebrated on September 4, the anniversary of Flaherty's hiring by Benjamin Day, publisher of the New York Sun. It is also observed by The Armidale Express, NSW, Australia.
