The Yale Daily News

Daily News

In its 20th-century heyday, the New York Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived by digging into crime and corruption. It served as a model for The Daily Planet, the newspaper that counted Clark Kent and Lois Lane among its staffers, and it won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary, feature writing and international reporting. Today, the paper is best known for its coverage of New York City politics and the latest gossip in sports and entertainment.

The News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States and has been independently owned since its founding in 1878. The News has a long history of launching the careers of notable journalists and public figures, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver and Jacob Weisberg. Today, the Yale Daily News serves the communities of Yale and New Haven with a Monday through Friday print edition and digital content. It also publishes a variety of special issues throughout the year, including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and Commencement Edition.

A digital version of the newspaper is also available on the Yale Daily News app. All news stories and photos appearing in the Yale Daily News are subject to copyright and may not be reused without permission from the YDN Rights and Permissions office.

Tribune Publishing Announces Daily News Layoffs

The Chicago-based company that owns the newspaper said this week that it will shutter its physical newsroom, a blow to employees and readers who value their local journalism. The News is the nation’s largest metropolitan daily, but it has struggled to compete with online media and has been losing subscribers for years. The News has been owned by a hedge fund run by Heath Freeman of Alden Global Capital since 2017.
