Columnists Day is celebrated on April 18th each year in honor of Ernie Pyle, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who reported from the European and Pacific theaters during World War II. This holiday was created on the death anniversary of Ernie Pyle, who died while reporting in Okinawa. #ColumnistsDay is an excellent opportunity to appreciate the hard work and dedication of journalists who risk their own safety to keep the public informed. Informing the public is indeed dangerous at times.

History of Columnists Day

Ernie Pyle was born on August 3, 1900 in Dana, Indiana. He grew up in a rural farming community and wrote for his school newspaper. After graduating from high school in 1919, Pyle worked as a reporter for several small-town newspapers. He eventually left Indiana and worked for the Washington Daily News and the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain.

Pyle departed the country in 1942 to provide updates from the Second World War's European theater. His letters were extensively read by both military personnel and civilians, and he often wrote about the life of everyday troops. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his work in 1944.

After the war, Pyle returned to the United States and continued writing for the Scripps-Howard newspaper chain. In 1945, he embarked on a tour of the Pacific theater, where he was killed by Japanese machine-gun fire on April 18th.
