Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News considers itself “New York’s Hometown Paper,” and has been known over the years for zesty headlines — including the 1975 screamer “Ford to City: Drop Dead!” — gossip, city coverage and star columnists like Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. Long locked in a circulation battle with its even more sensational rival tabloid the New York Post, the Daily News survived well into the 21st century, although its circulation was much diminished from its mid-20th-century peak. In 2014, the newspaper and ProPublica won a Pulitzer Prize for revealing how the city improperly used eviction law to oust residents from their homes.

In announcing the sale, Tronc, which evolved from Daily News founder the Tribune Company, said it would continue to invest in the newspaper’s journalism and make it available online. It will also invest in digital platforms and mobile apps for its other newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune. Tronc’s acquisition of the Daily News will give it a substantial presence in the New York media market, where it already owns several other major newspapers.
