The Daily News is a morning daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It is a major contender for the nation’s top selling newspapers. In addition to its headline news coverage, the paper includes comics, celebrity gossip, classified ads, and an opinion section. The newspaper is also a major player in sports. As of 2016, the Daily News had a circulation of 200,000.
When the Daily News was founded in 1919, it was named the Illustrated Daily News. Over the next few decades, it became the nation’s first successful tabloid newspaper. During this time, it focused on scandals, political wrongdoing, and social intrigue. Many of its reporters were noted journalists. They included Frank Knox, who later served as the secretary of the navy under Franklin D. Roosevelt; and Jimmy Cannon, who was a boxing writer.
Eventually, it was acquired by John S. Knight, who operated the newspaper for fifteen years. He then sold it to Tribune Publishing, a Chicago-based media company. At the same time, he also started a radio station that was called WPIX. Originally, the radio station was FM simulcast on an AM radio station, but it was eventually purchased by CBS Radio.
Following this, the paper was referred to as the Chicago Daily News. It became widely syndicated throughout the United States. With a circulation of over 200,000, it was considered a top-tier American newspaper.
In addition to reporting on the local area, the paper often covered the national and international affairs. This is reflected in the newspaper’s editorial stance. One of the New York Times’s editors described it as a “high-minded populist” and a “flexibly centrist” newspaper. However, its political stance has come under scrutiny, and it has been accused of being a staunchly Republican newspaper.
However, it has also earned recognition as a moderate and liberal alternative to the conservative Post. For example, it has been lauded for its coverage of immigration and its efforts to uncover corruption. In 2017, the Daily News won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
Today, the Daily News maintains several bureaus in the city. These include the Brooklyn and Bronx bureaus. Additionally, the paper offers an interactive edition. Its website allows readers to share and download stories via email or mobile devices. By the end of the decade, the Daily News circulation had grown to more than 200,000 copies a day.
In recent years, technology has taken a toll on American journalism. As a result, a number of newspapers have closed their doors. But there is hope that these communities can find a new form of local journalism. Andrew Conte has written a compelling book that examines the tragedy of losing a local paper.
