What is a Daily News?

A daily news is a newspaper that publishes news articles on a regular basis. It can be published on a broadsheet or tabloid basis, and can include editorial opinions. It may cover local, national, or international news events. The term daily news can also refer to a television or radio show, or a website that provides current or breaking news.

Weekly newspapers have smaller circulations than daily papers, and generally cover smaller territories, such as a single town or rural county, or several neighborhoods in a larger city. They are more likely to feature community journalism, and frequently include local government, schools, crime, business, or sports news in their coverage. Some weeklies also offer lifestyle features, reviews of local theater and arts, and restaurant reviews, and may have a food section that concentrates on recipes.

Often, weekly newspapers have staffs that are larger than those of daily newspapers, and the employees often hold multiple roles. For example, a news editor might also sell advertising. The size of the staff varies, and some have as many as several reporters covering one or more specific beats, such as schools, local business, or police.

In the late 1920s, the New York Daily News gained a reputation for its sensational pictorial coverage and its willingness to take risks to achieve an attention-grabbing front page story. This approach paid off, and the newspaper quickly became a nationally known newspaper.

The News has had many significant milestones, including establishing the first color television station in 1948 (WPIX, which still bears the News’ call letters), and becoming the first major urban newspaper to develop a fully electronic publishing system in the 1990s. The News is also famous for its intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, and a large sports section.

The newspaper has also won a number of Pulitzer Prizes, most recently for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race and welfare issues, and for Mike McAlary’s coverage of police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima. It is a staunch defender of the First Amendment and has advocated for the rights of those who are underrepresented in the media.

In addition to the traditional print edition, the Daily News also has a website and produces short video news updates that are posted online and on social media. These videos are compiled from a variety of sources and are intended to be a brief summary of the day’s most important news stories. The weekly News also releases twice-daily news digests, which are curated by the editors and focus on the most important stories in a given area. The digests are available online and in the magazine. They are also available as a free iPhone app. The News also maintains a large archive of historical articles. The website includes a searchable database of articles dating back to 1919.
