Yale Daily News

The Daily News is the oldest newspaper in the United States. Founded in January 28, 1878, it is Yale’s newspaper and has been editorially and financially independent since its founding. The News publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year and serves Yale, New Haven and the surrounding community.

The News features a wide variety of stories including national and local events, politics, business and sports. It also features articles that focus on the arts, education and other topics of interest to Yale students. The newspaper also publishes several special editions during the academic year, including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, Commencement Issue and First Year Issue. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive contains digitized versions of printed copies of the Yale Daily News for over 140 years. The archive is available to anyone with access to the internet.

For many years the Daily News was a dominant tabloid with high circulation and strong advertising sales. It was known for its zesty headlines, such as “Ford to City: Drop Dead” during New York’s financial woes in 1975, and gossip, along with city coverage from star columnists such as Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. In recent decades, the News struggled to maintain its audience and revenue with a muscular hometown rival, the New York Post, and with the general shift toward online news.

This year the Daily News and ProPublica won a Pulitzer Prize for public service journalism for uncovering how authorities used an obscure law to illegally evict residents of low-income neighborhoods. The news was published in the Daily News and on its website, demonstrating that print can still be an important vehicle for public service journalism.

The newspaper is based in the historic Daily News building, at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue in Manhattan, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood and built in 1929. It is an official city and national landmark and served as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The building was sold in 1995 and is now the headquarters of Associated Press, with the company’s world headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West). The News’ former subsidiary WPIX-TV remains located in the old Daily News building.
