Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper in the United States. The paper was the first American daily printed in a tabloid format and is currently owned by tronc, the publishing operations of Tribune Company. The Daily News is the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the country, and has a large staff of journalists. The paper covers city, national, and international news, as well as sports and celebrity gossip, comics, and a variety of other features. It has a left-wing bias and is often contrasted with the right-wing New York Post.
The Daily News was established by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News. The name was later changed to the Daily News and it soon became one of America’s most popular newspapers. Its sensational crime and scandal coverage, lurid photographs, and comics and other entertainment features attracted readers and it quickly reached a circulation of more than 200,000.
For many years the Daily News was in a fierce rivalry with its even more sensational sister paper, the New York Post. The News was once able to keep the entire city’s attention by simply screamer headlines like, “Ford to City: Drop Dead!” However, circulation continued to decline in the wake of the emergence of television and the Internet, which diminished the newspaper’s prominence. The News is now owned by tronc, the parent company of Tribune Company, and is based in Manhattan’s Lower Manhattan at 4 New York Plaza.
In addition to the newspaper, Daily News operates several radio and television stations and maintains news bureaus in Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and at City Hall and within One Police Plaza. The newspaper also publishes the Yale Daily News, the nation’s oldest college daily, which is distributed Monday through Friday during the academic year and serves the campus community of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.
