Daily news is a term used to describe a newspaper that contains a summary of events that occurred on the preceding day or days. It also contains information that has been compiled by a variety of sources. A daily newspaper typically includes a wide variety of topics such as politics, business, sports, and entertainment. It also provides detailed local and world news. In addition, daily newspapers often contain classified advertisements and comics.
The New York Daily News was founded in 1919 as the first American tabloid newspaper. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and entertaining cartoons. Its success led to the proliferation of similar publications in the United States. The Daily News was an early adopter of the Associated Press wire photo service and developed a staff of photographers.
In 1948 the News established WPIX-TV, whose call letters were based on its nickname as “New York’s Picture Newspaper”; the station remains at the old Daily News Building. The News also owned the radio stations WPIX and its FM simulcast, WFAN-FM (now known as WABC-FM). The newspaper itself moved in 1995 from 220 East 42nd Street to 450 West 33rd Street, now called Manhattan West.
The News’ editorial stance was initially conservative populist, in line with the Tribune’s isolationism at the beginning of World War II. By the end of that period, however, it had shifted to a more moderate position. In the 1990s, it became a strong Democratic rival to the Post.
Today, the paper maintains offices in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, and it has a bureau at City Hall within One Police Plaza and at the various city courthouses. It also has bureaus in several state capitols and a representative office at the United Nations.
The New York Daily News is a subsidiary of Tronc, which bought it from publisher Mortimer Zuckerman in 2017. Its circulation was 2.4 million at its peak in 1947. The newspaper has won numerous awards for its journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News in 1996 and the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Writing in 2018. It has also won numerous awards for its photography. The newspaper is the oldest continuously published daily in the United States. The current publisher is Julie Stafford. The paper is one of the best-selling in the country and has been named Newspaper of the Year on multiple occasions. Its editorial board has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize on multiple occasions as well. It has won the National Press Club’s Newspaper of the Year award.
