You know what today is, don’t you? It’s National Hug a News Anchor Day.

What, you didn’t have it marked on your calendar?

To mark the occasion, Mike Jerrick of Good Day Philadelphia took to the streets outside Fox29’s studios this morning. Looking for love. As you can see, Mike got a warm response, even if he had to stalk some pedestrians. Not participating: the SEPTA bus driver.

Hey, Mike, be sure to let us know when Karen Hepp takes the “Hug Me” sign out on Market Street.
