A Newspaper Carrier, or Courier, delivers newspapers to customers on a paper route. Duties in a newspaper delivery job may include retrieving the day's newspapers from the publisher, delivering the daily paper to customers, and collecting money when it is due. The paper route may change or be longer on the weekend.
Newspaper Carrier Day honors 10-year-old Blarney Flaherty, the first paperboy hired by the Museum of the City of New York in the United States. In 1833, in response to an advertisement in “The Sun,” calling for “steady men” to apply, young Flaherty hoisted a load of newspapers.
