The Daily News Archive

Daily News is a daily newspaper founded in 1878. It is published Tuesday through Friday and offers local business information that can’t be found anywhere else. It includes public records of property transactions, tax liens, marriage licenses, corporate charters, building permits, foreclosures and bankruptcies. It also publishes court filings, obituaries and local sports news.

The paper is owned by Tronc, which owns the Tribune Company newspaper chain and other properties. The Daily News is currently the nation’s largest print daily newspaper, with a circulation of over 1.5 million. The New York City paper is the oldest tabloid and was a pioneer in tabloid journalism. It was the first US newspaper to be printed in tabloid format, and reached its peak circulation in 1947.

It was also one of the first newspapers to use a color photo on the front page. The News was a pioneer in the use of slang, and many of the phrases that are now commonplace in newspaper language originated with its writers. It was a leading proponent of investigative journalism in the United States, and was a major influence on other newspapers around the world.

In its early years, the Daily News was a fierce advocate for worker rights and social justice issues. It was a staunch supporter of unions and fought for civil rights in the face of adversity. It was also a leader in the battle against corruption in New York City politics. The News has been a trusted source of news for generations of readers, and has always been at the forefront of modern technology.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive was made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous Yale College alumnus in 2021, which facilitated the migration to this more user-friendly platform, augmented its content with recent issues and provided funding for ongoing maintenance and preservation. The archive is freely available to all users worldwide.
