Morning Show Hosts Day

September 27th is observed annually as Morning Show Hosts Day—a holiday dedicated to the on-air personalities who start our day with witty banter, useful information, and sometimes even infectious laughter. These charismatic, and sometimes erudite, personalities know how to brighten our mornings and keep us coming back day after day.

And that’s why a holiday was dedicated to them. This day is the perfect way for people to show some appreciation for the personalities that bring joy, entertainment, and information into our lives. It is also a good day to learn a bit more about the history of your favorite morning shows.

The History of Morning Show Hosts Day

Morning shows are generally classified as any news or general information broadcasts that air between 5 am and 10 am. These are shows that people can watch as they’re getting ready for school or work, but are also enjoyed by stay-at-home adults.

It should be noted that the term “morning show” is mainly used in the U.S. In other parts of the world, these shows are often called “breakfast shows” or “breakfast TV.” Even though morning shows in the U.S. officially started with the premiere of Today on NBC in 1952, it wasn’t until the 1980s that morning television really found its footing and took off.

Now, there is a morning show on just about every network—just waiting to inform and entertain us as we prepare for our days. Unfortunately, we’re currently unsure of when Morning Show Hosts Day was created.

We simply can’t find any information that tells us when this holiday was created or who created it. We do believe that it’s a holiday that’s only been around for a few years, but we can neither confirm nor deny whether that’s the case.

Observing Morning Show Hosts Day

We don’t think any holiday can be easier to celebrate than this one. All a person has to do is tune in to their favorite morning show and enjoy the fun. Of course, if people want to celebrate this holiday further, they can.

They can take the time to send a message of appreciation to their favorite morning show hosts, or they can give them a shout-out on social media using the hashtag #MorningShowHostsDay. Let’s all take the time to appreciate morning shows and their hosts as they fill our mornings with light, joy, and information.
