Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is the oldest and most famous tabloid newspaper in the United States. The newspaper focuses on crime, scandal, and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons. The paper is also known for its intense city news coverage and celebrity gossip.
The current Daily News is a tabloid morning newspaper that serves the New York metropolitan area in the United States. The Daily News was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News and became the first U.S. newspaper printed in the tabloid format. In its early days, the newspaper emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue such as the love affair between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to her abdication.
It was once the largest-circulation paper in the world, but its circulation has declined since its peak in the mid-20th century. Today, it ranks 11th in the nation with 2.4 million readers. The newspaper’s editorial offices are located in Manhattan’s Midtown neighborhood at 450 West 33rd Street, which straddles the railroad tracks that lead into Pennsylvania Station.
As the Daily News has evolved, it has adopted a variety of journalistic styles, from hard-hitting exposés to tabloid sensationalism. Its newsroom is led by an editor-in-chief who reports to a managing editor and an editorial board. A large staff of reporters, columnists, and cartoonists contribute to the paper.
The Daily News is available on multiple platforms including print, mobile, tablet, and online. It is one of the most popular English-language newspapers in South Africa. The Daily News is a part of Independent Media, which includes the country’s most popular newspapers and digital offerings.
