Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first tabloid-style newspaper in the United States. The newspaper reached its peak circulation in 1947, and at that time was the ninth highest-circulated daily newspaper in the world. During its peak years, the newspaper was famous for its large and spectacular headquarters, the Daily News Building at 220 East 42nd Street (later known as Manhattan West) in downtown Manhattan. The building was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, and is an official city and national landmark. The News remained in the building until 1995, when it moved to 450 West 33rd Street. The former News subsidiary WPIX-TV still operates out of the building.
Death of the Daily News is a deeply reported and thoughtful study of what happens when a community loses its local newspaper. The book examines the societal consequences of this loss, and provides valuable clues as to how newspapers can survive in the future. This book is essential reading for anyone concerned with the state of local journalism.
