Founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News, the Daily News is the first daily paper in the United States to be published in tabloid format. In its first decade, it grew into one of the largest newspapers in the nation. It reached a peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day in 1947. Today, it is owned by Tribune Publishing. In 2017, The Daily News won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
The Daily News’s history is a tale of a long battle for circulation, with the newspaper initially locked in a circulation war with the New York Post. Over the years, the Daily News has also won a number of awards for commentary and writing. The paper is known for its “high minded” editorial stance.
As a brawny metro tabloid, the Daily News was able to attract readers with lurid photographs. It also focused on crime and political wrongdoing. At one point, the newspaper had a circulation of 1.5 million. The Daily News’s newsroom was located at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan. Its headquarters straddled railroad tracks going into Pennsylvania Station. Its staff also made use of the wirephoto service offered by the Associated Press.
The Daily News gained a reputation for being a moderate, liberal alternative to the right-wing Post. In early World War II, the Daily News supported isolationism. After the war, the paper began to shift. It began publishing afternoons instead of mornings. In the mid-1970s, the newsroom began to move from its headquarters at 220 East 42nd Street to a new building located at 450 West 33rd Street. Today, the building is the world headquarters of the Associated Press. The building is also home to WPIX-FM, which is now owned by CBS Radio.
In addition to news coverage, The Daily News has a sports section. It also produces a number of niche publications that focus on local businesses, agriculture and more. Its newsroom has won many awards for photography and writing. It is also one of the most comprehensive news websites. You can also download editions to read offline. It is also one of the most widely read newspapers in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.
The Daily News is also known for its distinctive four-faced clock. The newsroom also has a wooden bench that is located in the lobby of the building. The building has been described as a national landmark, and was designed by Raymond Hood and John Mead Howells.
The Daily News’s website is also one of the most comprehensive news websites. The site features an online opinion section and also has a popular social media platform. The Daily News also has a number of local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens. The paper is also known for its cartoons and comics. The Daily News’s staff has won several awards for journalism and advertising.
Today, the Daily News is published in several counties throughout New York State, including Genesee, Wyoming and Orleans. It also publishes a daily newspaper in the Hudson Valley. The paper’s mission remains to keep readers up to date with life in New York.
