The Daily News at Yale

For over a century, Daily News has been one of America’s best-read newspapers. Its award-winning writers, columnists and opinion formers bring you the latest national and local news as well as New York exclusives, gossip and entertainment. No one covers the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets like The Daily News! The newspaper is also a leader in city news and politics. Daily News subscribers also get a rich and robust package of classified ads, comics, sports and a section focused on education.

The Daily News has a long history of scooping and breaking big stories. In 1932, it began a photo wire service that gave its reporters instant access to news in the field. This helped the paper catch many important breaking stories, including the Teapot Dome scandal and Wallis Simpson’s romance with King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. The newspaper was a pioneer in tabloid journalism and reached its peak circulation in 1947, with 2.4 million copies a day. Today, the Daily News has a circulation of approximately 500,000 and is headquartered in a landmark building designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood at 220 East 42nd Street (also known as Manhattan West).

A digital edition of the newspaper is available online at a fraction of the cost of the printed version. This version is optimized for mobile reading, with a simple user interface and the latest digital tools to enhance your news experience. The digital edition can be downloaded for offline reading and is easy to share with friends through email.

Each Daily News article includes a set of comprehension and critical thinking questions for students to answer. Each question is followed by “Background” and “Resources” to help expand students’ understanding of the news story.

For more than 130 years, Yale’s Daily News has been the nation’s oldest college daily. The News is financially and editorially independent, publishing every weekday when the University is in session. It is the only newspaper that provides comprehensive coverage of news, sports and cultural life at Yale and in New Haven. The newspaper is committed to diversity and inclusivity and has been home to alumni such as William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver, and Strobe Talbott.

The Yale Daily News is published each weekday during the academic year at the West Campus. It also publishes the Yale Daily News Magazine and several special issues, such as the Commencement issue, the Yale-Harvard Game Day issue and the First Year issue. Its staff is composed primarily of undergraduate and graduate students who are recruited from the faculty, administration, student body, and other parts of the community.
