2009 Newspaper Headlines

The year 2009 is one to be celebrated as a year of ‘firsts’. On the 20th January, Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States and the first African-American president in history. Later in the year, Carol Ann Duffy was the first Scottish woman to be appointed British Poet Laureate. Both records were documented within national 2009 news articles and discussed at length by the renowned publishers at the time.

Other 2009 events included the sad and poignant prize of Best Supporting Actor to Heath Ledger at the Academy Awards after the world’s media was shocked by his death the year before. If you would like to learn more about these events, any listed in our breakdown of the year in the table below, or you would just like to commemorate a special day personal to you, a 2009 newspaper is the perfect purchase.
