The New York Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper. Originally known as the Illustrated Daily News, it was launched in 1919 and was the first tabloid in the United States. It attracted readers with its sensational coverage of crime, political wrongdoing, social intrigue, and other subjects. After a few months, it changed its name to the Daily News. Today, the paper is a part of Tribune Publishing. While the name has been changed, the paper still maintains local bureaus in Brooklyn and the Bronx.
The paper offers several online platforms for readers to interact with each other. For example, users can read the newspaper on a mobile device or download editions to read offline. There are also comics and classified ads. In addition to the newspaper’s news coverage, it covers sports, celebrity gossip, and opinion.
The Daily News has won numerous awards for its commentary and feature writing. For example, in 2017, the newspaper received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. Despite a recent drop in circulation, the paper remains a popular newspaper in the five boroughs and KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa. However, it is unclear how the newspaper will survive in the future. Many of its staff members are concerned about their future work.
The Daily News is published Monday through Friday during the academic year. Its issues have been produced by affiliated student groups, such as the Commencement Issue. As of 2017, the paper is owned by Tribune Publishing. Alden Global Capital is one of the shareholders of the company. This investment group has purchased nearly one-third of the publicly traded shares of the newspaper publisher.
The Daily News is a venerable institution, but it has suffered financially for decades. Since the 1990s, the newspaper has had to lay off employees. But the Daily News has managed to maintain a strong local news coverage while also winning international reporting awards.
As of 2016, the newspaper’s circulation was more than 200,000. Although the newspaper is no longer able to hold the city’s attention with a single headline, its editorial stance is a mix of high-minded and populist. Still, its newsroom remains home to a number of notable journalistic giants.
Among them are the paper’s co-publisher, Mortimer B. Zuckerman, a media mogul; his wife, Diana; and Rachel Shah, an associate editor. They are among the many award-winning journalists at the Daily News. Their work has been featured in CityLab, The Wall Street Journal, DNAinfo, NPR, and ProPublica.
The Daily News has gained a reputation as a moderate liberal alternative to the right-wing New York Post. It has also received recognition for its strong investigative reporting. The paper is widely read in the five boroughs and in the southern KwaZulu-Natal province.
Other prominent figures in the Daily News’s newsroom include Clifford Ross, who has covered Staten Island and the New York State Legislature. Also a member of the team, Jonathan has been a writer for the Chronicle of Higher Education and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. He is a graduate of the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.
