The Daily News

A daily news is a publication that provides current events and features. It may include sports, entertainment, politics and other local or national happenings. Many readers turn to the daily news to find out what is going on in the world. Almost every nation has some form of daily news. The most popular is probably the newspaper, which is available in print and online. Other forms of media that are often used to spread the news are radio and television.

One of the most important aspects of a news article is its headline. The headline needs to catch the reader’s attention and evoke an emotion, curiosity or desire to learn more. It is also important to write the headline so it fits the content of the article. For example, a sports story will often begin with the score followed by the name of the team and its players. The news article then explains how the game was won or lost.

During the 1920s, the New York Daily News flourished due to sensational pictorial coverage. It was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers. It was also known for its columnists such as Ed Sullivan who would go on to become a TV celebrity and host The Ed Sullivan Show. The newspaper also established WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City) whose call letters were based on the newspaper’s nickname of “New York’s Picture Paper”.

By the 1980s, the Daily News was losing money. Its parent company, the Tribune Company, was pushing to break its union contracts in order to cut labor costs. The Daily News’ ten unions went on strike in October 1990, resulting in the newspaper hiring non-union replacements and incurring a $70 million loss during the fourth quarter alone.

The Daily News was purchased in 1993 by Mort Zuckerman, owner of the Atlantic. Its circulation peaked during this period with over 2.4 million daily and 4.7 million Sunday readers. The paper’s editorial policy was shifted away from its historically staunch Republican stance, becoming more of a “flexibly centrist” publication.
