The Daily News is the morning daily tabloid newspaper in New York City. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News. It was the first newspaper in the United States to be printed in a tabloid format. The paper reached its peak circulation in 1947, at 2.4 million copies a day. It is now owned by Tronc.
The paper maintains local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens as well as at City Hall and within One Police Plaza. It also publishes a Sunday edition, called the Sunday News.
It is a member of the Newspaper Association of America and the American Society of News Editors. The paper’s editorial stance is viewed as “flexibly centrist” with a “high-minded, if populist, legacy.” Its editorial page has frequently featured political figures.
A major player in New York’s media industry, it is also the owner of WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City) and radio station, as well as a newspaper subscription service known as The News. Its headquarters is at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan.
The Daily News building, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood in 1929, is an official city landmark. Its lobby features a large globe and weather instruments. It was formerly the world headquarters of the Associated Press, and still serves as the home of the paper’s former subsidiary, WPIX-TV.
For many years, it was the largest newspaper in the world by circulation, until the arrival of the New York Post. While it has struggled in recent years, it continues to provide strong coverage of New York City.
Its articles are written by a staff of award-winning writers, columnists and opinion formers. Its readers read a diverse selection of topics, including sports, politics and the latest gossip.
It is available on computer, mobile and tablet devices. Its interactive features enhance the reading experience and make it more enjoyable than a print copy. The Daily News E-dition is the perfect way to keep up with your favorite newspaper on the go.
