About the Holiday

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. Or send them a tweet, email, or letter showing them your appreciation. Here's a video of Fox & Friends celebrating this holiday where one of the hugs gets a little too friendly.

Some of the more well known news anchors include: Walter Cronkite, Tom Brokaw, Barbara Walters, Peter Jennings, Sam Donaldson, and Diane Sawyer.

We were unable to locate the origins of this holiday, though there are many references to it being celebrated on April 4th.
