The Daily News

The Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper based in New York City. It features local and national news, entertainment coverage, and sports. It also offers an extensive calendar of events and an opinion section. Its awards-winning writers and columnists are known for their writing. The paper has a large circulation in the United States and is considered to be one of the leading newspapers in its genre in the country.

In 1975, the New York Daily News rolled out a front-page screamer: “FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD.” The headline was the result of President Gerald Ford’s veto of a bankruptcy bailout for the city, and it would become known as one of the most famous newspaper headlines in history. The Daily News was able to retain its position as one of the city’s most popular publications, and it continued to be an important source of information for New Yorkers.

It was the first newspaper printed in tabloid format and reached its peak circulation in 1947, when it had a daily print run of over 2.4 million copies. Its headquarters, the Art Deco Daily News Building, was an iconic structure in downtown Manhattan. It was designed by Raymond Hood and John Mead Howells, who were responsible for the Chicago Tribune Tower.

In the 1980s, the Daily News was struggling. The company had yielded to union demands in the areas of rules, job numbers and overtime, and by the time 1990 rolled around, the newspaper was losing money every month. The Daily News was eventually sold to Tribune Publishing, which later renamed itself Tronc. Under the leadership of publisher Mortimer B. Zuckerman, the Daily News made a number of changes to its operations in an effort to increase profits. The newspaper also invested $60 million in color presses to allow the News to compete with its larger competitor, USA Today.

In addition to its nationally focused news and politics section, the daily newspaper features intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads and comics. It also includes a large section on sports, especially the Yankees, Mets and Giants. The Daily News is known for its skepticism of liberal policies and its conservative editorial stance. Many of its writers and columnists have gone on to hold positions in the government and in the business world. The Yale Daily News Historical Archive is a digital repository of the newspaper’s archived pages from 1907 to 2021.
