The Daily News

daily news

The Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919 in New York City. The paper considers itself “New York’s Hometown Newspaper,” informing everyday New Yorkers about their city and more. It is known for zesty headlines — perhaps most famously in 1975, when it ran the screamer, “Ford to City: Drop Dead,” after President Ford vetoed a city bankruptcy bailout — and gossip as well as its strong city coverage and star columnists, such as Jimmy Breslin and Pete Hamill. It has also won 11 Pulitzer Prizes, including this year’s award for public service journalism, for uncovering how local governments used a loophole to evict tenants from their homes.

The newspaper has faced significant challenges in recent years as the newspaper industry has struggled with declining print readership and advertising revenue. In addition, the Daily News has faced competition from a muscular hometown tabloid rival, the New York Post. It has also grappled with a decline in the number of readers who choose to receive their news online instead of in print.

Despite these challenges, the Daily News has seen some resurgence in recent years, largely due to its coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. In 2017, it was announced that the Daily News would be sold to Tronc, a company that has evolved from the founders of the Daily News, the Tribune Company, for one dollar. Tronc assumed the Daily News’ operational and pension liabilities as part of the deal.

In the years since the purchase by Tronc, the Daily News has continued to focus on local and state politics and news of interest to New Yorkers. In addition, the newspaper has been able to attract top sports writers and has seen success in its coverage of New York’s professional teams, including the Yankees, Mets and Giants.
