Daily news is a newspaper published on daily basis, usually in the English language. It covers the world, especially news related to politics, crime, sports and business. It is available on mobile devices and computers through a subscription or via a digital edition replica.
The New York Daily News was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, and is the first American newspaper to be printed in tabloid format. Its peak circulation was 2.4 million copies per day in 1947, and as of 2019[update] it is the eleventh-highest-circulating daily newspaper in the United States.
Since its founding, the News has been financially and editorially independent. It has a “flexibly centrist” editorial stance, and for many years has been a moderately liberal alternative to the conservative New York Post.
Today, the News operates as a division of the Chicago Tribune Company and has local bureaus in New York City, in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, at the city’s One Police Plaza and at various state and federal courthouses throughout the city. It also has a television station, WPIX (Channel 11), which it established in 1948; and a radio station, WFAN-FM, which it purchased from Emmis Communications in 2014.
The News’s main office is located at 220 East 42nd Street, near Second Avenue. The building was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, and is an official city and national landmark. It was the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.
Previously the Daily News’s headquarters was in an office building at 450 West 33rd Street (also known as 5 Manhattan West). This location still retains a large globe and weather instruments in its lobby, and the former WPIX-TV (now WFAN-FM) remains in the building.
The Daily News is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States, and publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year for the communities of Yale and New Haven, Connecticut. It also publishes a weekly supplement and a variety of special issues each year, including a Game Day Issue, the Yale-Harvard Commencement Issue and the First Year Issue.
