DID YOU KNOW: Town Criers were the original news broadcasters?

The Town crier would read a proclamation, usually at the door of the local inn, then nail it to the doorpost of the inn. The tradition has resulted in the expression “posting a notice” and the naming of newspapers as “The Post”. In blogging we still refer to a written article as a “post”
