For over a century the Yale Daily News has been the leading source of news and debate on campus and in the surrounding community. Founded on January 28, 1878, the News is the oldest college daily in America and is independent editorially and financially. It has had a number of prominent alumni in journalism and public life, including William F. Buckley, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Joseph Lieberman, Sargent Shriver, Paul Steiger, Strobe Talbott, and Calvin Trillin. The News is published every weekday during the academic year in New Haven and Yale. The paper also publishes a Friday supplement known as WEEKEND, and several special issues each year in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.
In addition to its print edition, the Daily News also broadcasts on radio and television, has a digital division and is on social media. Its website has more than four million unique visitors a month and is the fourth largest newspaper site in the United States.
Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, it was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. Its success was based on sensational reporting of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. It reached its peak circulation in 1947, with a circulation of more than two million copies a day.
The News was sold to Tronc, the parent company of the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, in 2017 by its then-owner, New York media mogul Barry Zuckerman. Since the sale, the Daily News has suffered through a round of ruthless cost-cutting by its new owner, Alden Global Capital. The New York Daily News and other newspapers owned by Tribune Publishing have seen staffing cuts, buyouts, and outsourcing of printing services. This has accelerated the pace at which the newsroom is producing content. The result has been a decline in readership and advertising revenue. A new era in the history of the Daily News is beginning.
