Warm up those hugging muscles, because on April 4, we’re showing our appreciation for newspeople in a big way. That’s right, we’re psyched to celebrate National Hug a Newsperson Day! This is the day that we give huge shout outs to everyone who helps us stay updated—from major anchors like Anderson Cooper to that weather guy who correctly pronounced Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch without skipping a beat. (Look it up—it’s amazing. He deserves the biggest hug of all.) So get ready to hug your favorite news anchor, even if that means wrapping your TV in a super weird embrace.
