The Daily News

Daily news is a source of information on a wide variety of topics. It usually consists of articles and summaries of important events and issues, as well as opinion pieces that offer different perspectives on the news. It can be found in print and online, as well as on television and radio. Many schools use daily news in their classrooms as a way to teach students about the world around them.

The New York Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States and reached its peak circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies a day. The paper attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, cartoons and entertainment news. It was a major competitor to the more conservative and serious New York Post, which reached its own high point in readership in the 1950s with 1.7 million copies daily.

In the late 20th century the newspaper struggled to remain competitive with the more modern Internet-based news sources, and saw its daily circulation dwindle to less than half a million. In 1991, controversial media mogul Robert Maxwell bought the newspaper and vowed to revive it as a “serious tabloid”. He made several big changes, including investing $60 million towards color presses, enabling the Daily News to match the visual quality of USA Today, the country’s highest-circulation daily. Maxwell also repositioned the Daily News to appeal to a younger audience, with a more provocative style and tone, rehashing one of its most famous headlines of all time: “Ford to City: Drop Dead.”

However, this was only the beginning of the paper’s darkest days. By 2017, circulation had halved again, and in September that year Maxwell’s former owners, the Tribune Publishing Company (which had been temporarily renamed Tronc), purchased the Daily News for a mere dollar.

Tronc went on a firing spree, culling the Daily News editorial staff by more than half. By the end of the year, the newspaper had only 45 editorial staff members, a fraction of the 400 who plyed their trade in the News Building in the 1980s.

The daily news is a free newspaper available online, in print and on mobile devices. It provides local, national and international news. It also covers sports, politics, and celebrity gossip and features New York City exclusives on the Yankees, Mets, Giants and Jets. The News also offers an extensive calendar of events. The newspaper is headquartered in 220 East 42nd Street, near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood that was used as the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. Its website is also available in multiple languages. The newspaper’s archives are available at the Yale Daily News Historical Archive. This site was recently funded by a generous gift from an anonymous Yale College alumnus in support of ongoing maintenance and preservation. This enables the Archive to be updated regularly and added to with further issues as they become available.
