Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the New York Daily News is the first daily newspaper to be printed in tabloid format in the United States. It reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day in 1947. In addition to its circulation in New York City, it also covers the Hudson Valley and New York state’s North Country.
In 1948, the Daily News launched its own radio station, WPIX, nicknamed “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” The station was sold to Emmis Communications in 1991, and is now owned by CBS Radio. The Daily News’ radio station, WFAN-FM, is also simulcast on AM radio. The Daily News has won 11 Pulitzer Prizes for editorials and commentary. The paper’s staff also has won several awards for advertising and photography.
The Daily News is owned by Johnson Newspaper Corp., a family-owned multimedia company that covers New York state’s Hudson Valley and North Country. In addition to its local newspapers, it also publishes a series of niche publications. For example, it publishes a magazine devoted to local agriculture. It also produces niche publications devoted to local business.
The Daily News is published daily in New York City, Genesee County, Wyoming County, and Orleans County. It also publishes a Sunday News. It also has local bureaus in Brooklyn and Queens. The Daily News has won several Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing. The newspaper is also published online. In addition to news, it also offers a sports section and classified ads.
The Daily News was one of the first newspapers to use the Associated Press wirephoto service. In addition to its local news coverage, the Daily News also boasted sensational coverage of crime. It also gained recognition for its emphasis on social intrigue and political wrongdoing. It was a staunchly Republican newspaper from 1940 through the 1960s. The newspaper also supported isolationism during World War II.
The Daily News was one of the largest newspapers in the United States. Its circulation had reached 1.5 million by 1930, and by 1947 had reached 2.4 million copies a day. By the mid-1970s, the newspaper had begun to shift. The Daily News no longer held the attention of the city with a single headline. The paper also became a tabloid, a size considered to be large.
In 1995, the Daily News was preparing to move from its former headquarters on East 42nd Street to a new building on West 33rd Street. Several of its mainstays sat on a bench when the move took place. One of them was legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon. The paper published an article about the move, and it was written from the perspective of the bench.
In 2017, the Daily News won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. It is also one of the most comprehensive news websites in the world. Its website features award-winning writers, prominent photographs for news and entertainment, and popular platforms for interacting with readers.
