Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is a morning daily tabloid newspaper that is published in New York City. Its local bureaus are located in Brooklyn and Queens. In addition to news, the Daily News covers local business, sports and entertainment. The newspaper has won numerous awards for its advertising, feature writing and photography.
The Daily News is owned by Tribune Publishing, a Chicago-based media company. It is also known as Tronc. In 2017, after more than two decades of financial turmoil, the Daily News was sold to Tribune for $1. The company is owned by media mogul Mortimer B. Zuckerman, who is also a real estate developer.
The Daily News reaches more than 200,000 readers in the city each day. It has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes, including for commentary, feature writing, and photography. It has also won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2017. The Daily News has been described by the New York Times as a “high-minded, populist” newspaper. Its coverage has also been characterized by Ballotpedia as “flexibly centrist”.
The Daily News, once the largest circulation newspaper in the country, suffered from a devastating pandemic in the 1970s. The paper became a major supporter of political isolationism during World War II. However, in the 1990s, The Daily News began a decline. In 1995, it announced plans to move its headquarters from East 42nd Street to West 33rd Street. In the meantime, the paper had cut its newsroom staff in half. In addition, it shuttered four other Tribune newspapers, including the Orlando Sentinel, The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., and the Capital Gazette.
In the mid-1970s, the Daily News began shifting its coverage. It no longer could hold the attention of the city with a single headline. Instead, it shifted to covering more breaking news and a wide range of subjects. In addition to news, the paper also covers sports, business, celebrity gossip, comics, and opinion formers.
The Daily News’s newsroom is filled with legendary journalists, including John York, Jim Rich, and Richard Brookshire. These people were responsible for its success. Over the years, they were known for their strong investigative reporting and feature writing. Some of these reporters have been credited with helping to expose corruption and crime in New York.
Before the pandemic, Tribune Publishing offered buyouts to its journalists. Several of them sat on a bench in the newsroom. One of them was legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon. Another was the former editor of The Daily News, Dick Young.
The Daily News has been credited with allowing voiceless people to be heard. It has covered the lives of people from all walks of life, and it has given voice to those who were not able to speak for themselves. In addition, the Daily News has given comfort to those who are afflicted. The Daily News is also known for its coverage of international news. It has won several international awards for its reporting.
