The Daily News

The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City, New York. The paper has been a major source of news in New York for over a century. The newspaper is known for its fearless coverage and expert analysis. The newspaper was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News and changed its name to the Daily News in 1925.

The newspaper grew in popularity throughout the 20th century and reached its highest circulation as of 1947. During this time, the newspaper was noted for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, its lurid photographs, and cartoons. In addition to its news coverage, the newspaper also offered sports and entertainment sections.

In recent years, the Daily News has struggled to adapt to changing trends in news consumption and advertising. The Daily News has had to contend with declining print sales and the loss of advertisers to competing online news sources. The newspaper has also had to deal with a strong hometown rival, the New York Post.

As of 2020, the newspaper is owned by Tronc, which acquired it in a deal that was finalized in April 2022. The deal gave Tronc ownership of one of the country’s largest newspaper chains, which includes newspapers in Connecticut and South Florida. The Daily News has been credited with helping to shape the dynamics of New York City over the past near-century.

In addition to its daily news section, the Daily News offers several other products, including a weekly magazine, a Sunday edition, and the website. The website allows users to subscribe to different news categories, such as politics and sports, which will send them articles related to those topics. The website also offers various other resources, such as classified ads and a community forum.

Originally, the Daily News was printed in black and white. However, in an effort to appeal to a broader audience, the newspaper began printing in color in the mid-1960s. In the 1980s, the Daily News expanded its coverage of local issues, and it began reporting on a wide variety of events, such as gang violence and school shootings. The Daily News also expanded its entertainment and comics sections.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains digitized versions of the printed newspaper that were produced from 1878 to 2019. It is the oldest college daily in the United States. The archive is open to the general public and can be browsed by topic or searchable by keyword. The Yale Daily News also has an active student publication, the YDN.
