The Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper that serves the city of New York. Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News and first printed in tabloid format, the paper reached its peak circulation in 1947. Today the Daily News is owned by Tronc, a media company based in Chicago. The News has a history of editorially independent journalism and a reputation for bold presentation.
The News was an early adopter of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers. It also emphasized political wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome scandal; and social intrigue, such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII that led to his abdication.
As of 2018, the Daily News has a staff of more than 700 and its main offices are located in New York City. Its local bureaus are located in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island; within City Hall and One Police Plaza; and at various government agencies throughout the city. The newspaper has a national news desk in Washington, D.C. and a network of international correspondents.
In addition to its printed edition, the Daily News publishes online and on mobile devices. Its digital subscriptions offer subscribers unlimited access to the Daily News E-dition on computers and mobile devices. The E-dition is the most convenient, complete, and cost-effective way to experience the Daily News.
