A New York City tabloid newspaper founded in 1919, the Daily News is a descendant of the Illustrated Daily News, which was published from 1855 to 1906. The newspaper is known for its intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, and comics sections. The Daily News is also a leading source of New York sports news.
The newspaper is owned by Tribune Publishing, which is controlled by hedge fund Alden Global Capital. The paper’s staffing has been impacted by the takeover and a series of cost-cutting measures by Alden. In response to the cost-cutting measures, some staffers have taken voluntary buyouts and others have quit the company.
As the newspaper continues to decline in circulation, it has focused on delivering local news and entertainment to readers. The News has also stepped up its social media presence and boosted its online content to keep readers engaged. The newspaper’s online edition has more than a million unique visitors per month.
In addition to the online version, the Daily News offers a digital edition (the E-dition). The E-dition is available for a monthly subscription fee and includes the newspaper’s full content as well as additional interactive features. The E-dition can be read on desktop and mobile devices.
For more than a century, the Daily News has been the newspaper of record for New York City and its residents, and one of America’s best-known newspapers. At its peak in the mid-20th century, the Daily News had one of the largest circulations in the country. In recent years, the newspaper’s circulation has slipped to under half its mid-20th-century peak, but it remains a top seller in the New York metropolitan area.
The Daily News has long been a prominent voice in New York politics and is a key source of information about city government, schools, and crime. The Daily News is also a respected source of news and opinion about the national political landscape. The newspaper’s editorial page is renowned for its incisive commentary and often serves as a forum for a wide range of viewpoints.
The News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States, founded on January 28, 1878. In addition to the daily newspaper, the News publishes several special issues each year, including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and Commencement Issue. The News also publishes special issues celebrating Yale’s Black, AAPI and Latinx communities in collaboration with the university’s cultural centers and student groups. The News is published Monday through Friday during the academic year. In addition to the regular Daily News, the paper produces a Friday supplement known as WEEKEND and the Yale Daily News Magazine. In 2019, the Daily News will launch an additional weekend edition known as WEEKEND Extra.
