Hug a Newsman Day is celebrated on April 4th of each year.

A Newsman, or Reporter, is a type of journalist who researches, writes, and reports on information to present in sources, conduct interviews, engage in research, and make reports.  The information-gathering part of a journalist’s job is sometimes called reporting, in contrast to the production part of the job such as writing articles.  Reporters may split their time between working in a newsroom and going out to witness events or interview people.  Reporters may be assigned a specific beat or area of coverage.  (Wikipedia)
