The Yale Daily News

For more than 130 years, the Yale Daily News (YDN) has been the primary source of news and debate at Yale. The YDN is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States, and many of its student editors and writers have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public life. YDN is a member of the News Media Alliance and the New England Press Association, and it has won numerous Pulitzer Prizes.

The YDN is an important part of Yale’s academic life and has played a vital role in molding the minds of future journalists and leaders. YDN’s staff, writers, and readers are passionate about the newspaper’s mission to inform and educate its audience about current events and the world around them. The YDN is the official campus paper of Yale University and is published every day that the University is in session, as well as on Sundays and holidays. The YDN is one of the leading newspapers in the country and is respected for its investigative reporting, editorial independence, and political commentary.

As New York’s hometown newspaper, the Daily News focuses on local issues that matter most to the people of the city. The News has long been known for its zesty headlines, gossip, and city coverage. It was a major player in the United States tabloid industry, and has won several Pulitzer Prizes during its history. The News has struggled in recent years as the newspaper industry has faced declining print circulation and shifting advertising dollars online. It has also been challenged by its muscular hometown tabloid rival, the News Corp.-owned New York Post. In 2015, the newspaper was put up for sale but remained in operation.

In 1948, the News established WPIX, Channel 11, a television station whose call letters were derived from its nickname of “New York’s Picture Newspaper,” and later bought what became WPIX-FM, an FM simulcast of its AM namesake. Both the TV and radio station remain in New York City, occupying the same building on 42nd Street designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
