Daily News

Founded in 1919, the Daily News is the oldest U.S. newspaper published in tabloid format and remains one of the most widely read newspapers in the country. It is a subsidiary of the former Tribune Company and is headquartered in New York City.

Its circulation is currently the ninth highest in the country, at 200,000 copies per day. The paper is owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company, and is based at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan.

The Daily News has a wide range of subject matter and features, including local news, international news, sports, business, entertainment, and politics. It was the first American daily newspaper printed in tabloid format and has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes.

In addition to its print edition, the Daily News also produces a weekly television program called The Daily News. It is a member of the Associated Press Television Network, which broadcasts news on television to the United States and Canada.

For many years, the Daily News was a very successful and popular tabloid, with a circulation that exceeded 2.4 million copies per day. Its sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons attracted readers.

During its peak in the 1920s, the Daily News published over 35,000 stories each week and was one of the most read dailies in the world. It also covered political wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome Scandal, and social intrigue, such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication.

The Daily News was a pioneer in using wirephotography, and it was among the first newspaper chains to establish radio stations in major cities. It has also won numerous awards, including three Pulitzer Prizes and eight National Newspaper Association awards for journalism excellence.

Its circulation has decreased greatly since the 1960s, but it is still a top seller and continues to provide high-quality local news in the New York area. In 2017, the Daily News was sold to Tronc, a media company that publishes several newspapers.

In the era of social media, newspapers play a critical role in shaping the national and international news agendas. In the past, this impact has been primarily measured by their circulation rates, but increasingly newspapers are able to reach more people through their content and their influence on other news outlets.
