Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is a tabloid-style daily newspaper published in New York City. The paper is owned by Johnson Newspaper Corp., a family-owned multimedia company that also covers New York state’s Hudson Valley. The paper is published every day, except Sunday. The Daily News also features news, sports, celebrity gossip, and classified ads.
The New York Daily News’ first editor was W.H. Brandish, who had previously served as the editor of the Los Angeles Times. In the 1920s, the paper was a popular source of information about life in New York, and it was considered a tabloid in size. It was published every day, except Sunday, and it had a circulation of 1.5 million in 1930. The paper was one of the first newspapers in the United States to use the Associated Press wirephoto service, which provided larger photographs than those that were common at the time. The Daily News also had a large staff of photographers. It also published cartoons.
The Daily News was a staunchly Republican newspaper for over five decades. In the 1940s, it was also known as a moderate liberal alternative to the right-wing Post, and it supported isolationism during World War II.
The Daily News’ editorial stance has been described by the New York Times as “high-minded”, “flexibly centrist,” and “populist.” It also won eleven Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing, and it was a model for the tabloid featured in the 1994 movie, “The Paper.” Its circulation has declined, but it has continued to provide strong local coverage. The Daily News has won multiple awards for writing, advertising, and photography.
The Daily News’ website has the most comprehensive news coverage available. It includes a sports section, opinion section, classified ads, and large photographs for entertainment and news. It features an interactive section, which lets users share stories through email or through a social media platform. The site also offers downloads for offline reading, and a popular platform for interacting with readers. In addition to its website, The Daily News also publishes niche publications for local agriculture and business. It also has a radio station, which is simulcast on AM and FM radio. It was purchased by Emmis Communications in 1991, and it is now owned by CBS Radio.
The Daily News’ format has changed little since it first began printing in 1919. Its newsroom is still filled with dozens of journalists who have been with the newspaper for decades. Several Daily News mainstays sat on a bench when it moved from its old headquarters on East 42nd Street to its new location on West 33rd Street. Some of these journalists included Jimmy Cannon, Dick Young, and dozens more.
The Daily News has also served as a model for the tabloid featured in “The Paper.” Among its reporters were Clark Kent and Lois Lane. It also has been noted for its coverage of crime and corruption. It was considered one of the first tabloid-style newspapers in the United States.
