While the origin of the Hug A Newsperson Day celebration is still unclear, this day was initially observed as National Hug A Newsman Day in the USA. The celebration of this day can be traced back at least to 1998, according to some reports. The name was later changed to be more inclusive since the field of journalism and news is extremely diverse.
Hug a Newsman Day can also be called Hug a News Anchor, Hug a Newswoman, or Hug an Anchorman or Anchorwoman. On this holiday you are encouraged to thank or show appreciation for the person that brings you the news. This can be done by visiting their station, in person, and giving them a hug.
