Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the New York Daily News was the first U.S. newspaper printed in tabloid format. At its peak in 1947, the newspaper reached 2.4 million copies per day and was the second highest circulated daily paper in the world.
By the 21st century, the Daily News was still one of the most read newspapers in the United States, although its circulation was much lower than that of the Post and other rival tabloids. The Daily News still drew large crowds with its sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence and its lurid photographs, and a wide variety of entertainment articles, including celebrity gossip and comics.

Located in New York City’s Times Square district, the Daily News building was designed by architect Raymond Hood and built in 1929.

In addition to its newspaper, the Daily News publishes books and operates a network of websites. It also maintains a newspaper distribution service called “The Daily News On-Demand” for customers who prefer to receive their paper electronically instead of through traditional mail. The company also owns several radio stations in the greater New York City area.
