The Daily News
Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. The Daily News, then called the Illustrated Daily News, attracted readers with its lurid pictures and sensational coverage of crime. It was also the model for the tabloid in the 1994 film “The Paper.”
The Daily News was a leading voice of political wrongdoing and social intrigue in the United States. It espoused conservative populism from the 1940s through the 1960s. It also was a staunch supporter of isolationism during the early days of World War II. The Daily News was also a pioneer in the use of the Associated Press wirephoto service. It was also one of the first newspapers in the nation to feature cartoons.
In addition to its news coverage, The Daily News also features prominent photographs of sports events. The newspaper’s staff has won several awards for their photography and advertising. Its staff also produces niche publications for local business and agriculture. It has been a strong competitor to the New York Post for years. The Daily News also produces a series of special issues throughout the year.
The Daily News has been in financial trouble for several decades. Its circulation has declined steadily. In 1993, it was sold to a media mogul named Mortimer B. Zuckerman, who bought it out of bankruptcy. In 2017, he sold it to Tribune Publishing for $1. The Daily News is now owned by Tribune Publishing. In addition to The Daily News, the company also publishes a number of other newspapers. These newspapers include The Times of London, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The New York Daily News, and others.
The Daily News has been in financial difficulty since 1993. Before that, the paper had a circulation of 1.5 million copies. In 1947, it reached a peak circulation of 2.4 million copies. It has been criticized for its editorial stance as “populist” and “flexibly centrist”.
The Daily News was once considered the largest circulation newspaper in the United States. It also reached peak circulation in 1947, when 2.4 million copies were printed each day. The Daily News also printed Sunday News. It was based in Jersey City, NJ. In addition to its print publication, the Daily News also broadcast on radio and television. The Daily News also established its own radio station, WPIX, in 1948. The radio station was later sold to CBS Radio and later merged into the Emmis Communications network.
The Daily News has a distinctive four-faced clock in the newsroom. Its newsroom has been home to journalistic giants including John York, Jimmy Cannon, Bill Gallo, and Dick Young. In 1995, the Daily News moved from its former headquarters on East 42nd Street to a new location on West 33rd Street. The Daily News has a wooden bench in the lobby of its building.
The Daily News has won 11 Pulitzer Prizes. It has also received several awards for commentary.
