What Is NATIONAL COLUMNISTS’ DAY
We owe much to the columnist, though we often do not think of them, Columnists day is dedicated to these wonderful individuals and what they bring to our lives. A columnist is an individual who produces written works that will be published in a series, generally offering commentary and opinions on current events or topics such as love, relationships, and careers. Columnists tend to have a following of people who actively look forward to reading their piece every day, and one of the most famous columnists ever is “Dear Abby”, though there’s a secret to be revealed about that one before this piece is over.
While traditionally columnists were writers and their works were delivered through a written medium, with the popularity of radio and television in the 30’s and 40’s, some of them took their written columns on the air. They would respond to everything from housekeeping advice to the best places to go fishing, or just how to handle difficult children. It was a growing field and all sorts of new things were being tried, with Hollywood Gossip being one of the most popular bits of content by far. In some ways not a lot has changed.
