The Daily News is a morning, daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It is owned and published by Tribune Publishing. Prior to becoming a part of the MediaNews Group, the newspaper was purchased by Mortimer B. Zuckerman in 1993. He sold the newspaper in 2017 to Tribune Publishing for a dollar.
As a newspaper, the Daily News features breaking news, sports, features, commentary, and opinion. It has won several Pulitzer Prizes. It is also an important part of New York’s cultural history, and has served as a model for many other tabloids. A popular digital format, the Daily News interactive edition, is available on computers and mobile devices. Users can share stories through email, or download editions for offline reading.
In the 1920s, the Daily News was one of the largest circulated newspapers in the United States. During this period, it emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue. It was also known for its cartoons and lurid photographs. By 1930, it had a circulation of over 1.5 million. But after the 1940s, the Daily News began to shift from being a heavily Republican newspaper to a more moderately liberal outlet.
Although it has changed a lot over the years, the Daily News has remained a prominent publication in the city. The newspaper’s mission is still to tell the story of New York. This includes a number of special issues. These include the Commencement Issue, Indigenous communities, and the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue.
In addition to reporting on crime, the Daily News has also been renowned for its investigative reporting. They have won the Sidney Hillman Foundation Award for Social Justice Reporting. Also, the paper’s reporters have received numerous awards. One article cites a reporter who strapped a camera to his leg as he took a photograph of an execution.
The paper has also won several Pulitzer Prizes for commentary. However, the newsroom has had a tough time over the last few years. Before the pandemic, Tribune Publishing was offering buyouts to reporters. Unfortunately, the publisher slashed the staff by nearly half. After the pandemic, the paper has been forced to cut costs drastically.
Although the daily newspaper is in financial trouble, it is still a source of news for residents of the city. Its circulation was more than 200,000 in 2016. Despite the fact that the newsroom is in turmoil, it remains one of the most widely read newspapers in the city.
The Daily News has been in financial trouble since at least the 1990s. Earlier this year, the newspaper was forced to close its offices in Lower Manhattan. Several of its employees started campaigns to save the newspaper. Eventually, Tribune Publishing agreed to sell the newspaper to Tronc for a dollar. Since then, the company has made several pay cuts, and has imposed furloughs.
Despite the adversity, the Daily News has remained one of the top-selling newspapers in the country. Today, the newspaper is published in more than 100 cities worldwide, including San Diego, Los Angeles, Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Johannesburg.
