The Daily News

With its large photographs and emphasis on entertainment and titillating stories, the daily news carved out a niche as one of the country’s most popular newspapers. By the end of the Roaring Twenties, it was the biggest newspaper in America. The Daily News was also an early adopter of the Associated Press wirephoto service. Its staff of reporters included Ed Sullivan, who would become famous on television as The Ed Sullivan Show. During the Second World War, it was renowned for its coverage of the war, and in 1947 it hit a circulation peak of 2.4 million copies a day.

By the 1970s, however, competition from rival tabloid papers was taking its toll. Readership began to decline, and by the 1980s the Daily News was operating at a loss. Eventually the newspaper’s parent company, the Tribune Company, put it up for sale.

In 1991, controversial British media mogul Robert Maxwell bought the paper for a single dollar. Maxwell set out to revive the Daily News’ reputation as a tough, hard-hitting tabloid. In addition to bringing back the classic headlines of the past—such as “Ford to City: Drop Dead” in 1975—he brought in a new generation of writers, including Jay Thomas and Tom Shales.

During the 2000s, the daily news fought to stay relevant in an era of online journalism and declining print sales. Its website featured live updates of breaking stories, and the newspaper’s satirical cartoons, comics, and local sports coverage continued to draw in readers. It also made a successful foray into television, creating the WPIX-TV channel in 1948 (which now has its own headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street, part of Manhattan West).

The Daily News is known for its political commentary and editorial positions on various candidates and ballot measure issues, which are covered by Ballotpedia. In addition, the News has a number of opinion columnists.

Today, the daily news is still based in New York City. The paper maintains a large staff of writers and journalists, covering national and international news as well as intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, and a dedicated sports section. No one covers the Yankees, Mets, and Giants like the Daily News. In addition, the paper publishes a large amount of local information and provides exclusives on the city’s top businesses. The News also has a robust online presence and features a variety of social media platforms. The News’ mobile app allows readers to download editions for offline reading and share stories with friends. The newspaper also offers a subscription service where users can get daily updates of their favorite articles.
