The Daily News

Founded in 1919 in New York City, Daily News was the first successful newspaper to be printed in tabloid format. At its peak in 1947, it had 2.4 million subscribers per day. Today it is the eleventh highest-circulated newspaper in the United States. The Daily News is a morning daily tabloid that focuses on local news, politics and sports. Its style is edgy and often controversial. It also contains a number of other sections including: classified ads, comics, horoscopes and a huge section on entertainment.

In addition to local news, the Daily News covers the world’s events and major political stories. It has also become known for its extensive coverage of crime, especially organized crime. The paper is a major competitor of the New York Post and often uses sensational headlines to gain attention.

The Daily News is a family-owned newspaper, founded in 1919. The paper’s headquarters are in the historic art deco Daily News Building, which is a New York landmark. Its sister publication, the Daily Mirror, is a tabloid published in Los Angeles.

Throughout its history, the newspaper has covered many important events in American history. In the early 20th century, the newspaper was one of the most successful tabloids in the United States, with a large circulation and sensational stories about murder, scandal and other criminal activity. The Daily News was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and had a staff of talented photographers.

By the 1980s, the Daily News had slipped from its high point and was losing money. Its parent company, the Tribune Company, offered the newspaper for sale but was unable to sell it. The paper was closed down for a short time in 1988.

A year later the Daily News returned to print, but its circulation was still only a fraction of what it had been in its 1940s heyday. In 1991, the newspaper was purchased by British media mogul Robert Maxwell, who had previously owned the Daily Mirror. The newspaper’s ten unions went on strike that same year and the Daily News struggled through a 147-day labor dispute.

In 1993, the Daily News was sold to Mort Zuckerman, owner of The Atlantic magazine. He invested $60 million in color presses, allowing the paper to compete with USA Today. In addition, he made changes to the editorial position of the newspaper to make it more serious and focused on New York. He was able to turn the newspaper around, and by 1996 the Daily News was once again profitable.

In the 21st century, the Daily News continues to be a top-selling tabloid, even though its circulation is far below its peak in the 1940s. Its reputation for covering the rights of people who are underrepresented or who are the subject of negative press is well known and earned the Daily News a Pulitzer Prize in 1996 for coverage by E.R. Shipp on issues of race and welfare. The Daily News also has a strong focus on the arts, with articles about music, dance, theatre and cinema. It also covers the world’s sports, particularly those involving the City of New York.
