The New York Daily News is one of the most widely circulated newspapers in the United States. It is a morning tabloid newspaper published in New York City. With a circulation of more than 200,000 copies, it has a strong local and sports coverage. However, the Daily News has been in financial trouble for many years and is in the process of reorganizing.
The New York Daily News was founded in 1919. In fact, it was the first daily printed in a tabloid format in the United States. During its early years, it featured sensational news coverage and lurid photographs. Eventually, the New York Daily News became an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service.
From its early days, the Daily News was a staunchly Republican publication. In the mid-1970s, the paper started shifting, and eventually it leaned more towards a more liberal view. As a result, it often contrasted with the right-wing New York Post.
Despite its liberal viewpoint, the Daily News was also known for its strong reporting of crime. Many a reporter was caught in the middle of a murder, and the News regularly printed dramatic photos of the victims. One reporter, for instance, strapped a camera to his leg to take a picture of an execution. His caption read “DEAD!”
As the Daily News gained prominence, it attracted readers with its sensational coverage of crime. When the Daily News grew to a peak of 2.4 million copies a day in 1947, it was the most circulated newspaper in the country. But a pandemic of coronavirus spread throughout the city and the Daily News’s circulation began to drop. This forced the publisher, then called Tronc, to cut the staff in half. After that, the Daily News was bought by a new media company, Tribune Publishing.
Tribune Publishing has since imposed furloughs and pay cuts on its staff. But the Daily News has kept its mission of chronicling life in New York and giving voice to the voiceless. For more than 130 years, the Daily News has been the primary source of news at Yale University. Several students have gone on to make significant contributions to the newspaper’s journalism.
Currently, The Daily News’s circulation is approximately 200,000. It is owned by Tribune Publishing and operates in several locations in New York State. A digital version of the newspaper is also available on smart phones and computers. Users can swipe between pages and share stories via email.
The Daily News was a model for a tabloid depicted in the 1994 movie “The Paper”. In addition to its grittier news coverage, the newspaper featured celebrity gossip, an opinion section, and prominent photographs of sports and entertainment.
The Daily News is still a popular newspaper in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. In 2017, the Daily News was named winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. And the newspaper has won numerous awards for commentary and feature writing.
Although the Daily News has struggled to stay afloat for decades, it is still one of the most widely circulated daily newspapers in the nation. At the end of 2016, it had a circulation of more than 200,000 copies.
