The Daily News has been a source of comfort for afflicted communities since it was founded in 1919. Located in New York City, the Daily News is a daily tabloid that focuses on local news, sports, opinion and celebrity gossip. In addition to its website, the Daily News also publishes a daily digital edition that is available on desktop and mobile devices.
While the Daily News had been a national landmark for decades, the company has been undergoing significant changes. This is reflected in the story of the paper’s recent acquisition by Tribune Publishing. A leading newspaper mogul, Mortimer B. Zuckerman, bought the Daily News out of bankruptcy in 1993.
But even though it is a top-selling publication, the Daily News has been in financial trouble for many years. When it reached peak circulation in 1947, it had a daily readership of 2.4 million copies. However, circulation began to decline and it was forced to reduce staff and impose pay cuts. Since then, the paper has lost its ability to hold the city’s attention with a single headline.
During the pandemic of the coronavirus, the Daily News’s reporters worked remotely. Although they had been granted buyouts by Tribune Publishing, their employment was not renewed. Instead, the paper’s executives imposed furloughs and pay cuts.
Despite the changes, the Daily News has been a voice for the afflicted. As the nation’s ninth-largest newspaper, the Daily News provides coverage of the city of New York. It is known for its sports section, cartoons and opinion formers. For example, it has been awarded 11 Pulitzer Prizes.
The Daily News was one of the first newspapers to use the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s. Its coverage of crime and social intrigue became a draw for readers. Eventually, the newspaper gained a reputation as a moderate, liberal alternative to the right-wing New York Post.
The Daily News has been a model for other tabloids such as The Daily Planet, which was based in San Diego. It has also been used as a setting in the 1994 movie “The Paper.”
The Daily News is still an important source of news for many residents of the New York City area. In fact, the Daily News has won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2017. Having won the prize twice in the last three years, the newspaper has been lauded for its investigative reporting and commentary.
Unlike other local newspapers, the Daily News’s newsroom has been home to some of the most important journalistic giants in the world. These include John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, who designed the Daily News building. Other famous journalists who have worked at the newspaper include Jimmy Cannon and Dick Young.
Andrew Conte has written a powerful account of the Daily News’s history and the societal impact of its decline. Conte’s book will appeal to those who care about the future of local journalism. At the same time, it is an accessible read for citizens of any political background.
