For the past 100 years, the Daily News has been one of America’s most influential newspapers. The paper has earned a reputation for covering intense and in-depth city news, but has also received awards for feature writing and commentary. In fact, the paper has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.
The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City. The publication covers local, national and international news, as well as features. Its coverage includes investigative reporting, business news, and breaking news. There is an opinion section as well as a sports section. The newspaper has local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.
In 2017, the Daily News was sold to Tribune Publishing for $1. This was the first time in five years the newspaper had been purchased by a company other than the previous owner, Mortimer B. Zuckerman. However, after the acquisition, a number of staff members were laid off. Despite the turmoil, the Daily News’s mission remains unchanged: to cover life in New York.
Former editor-in-chief Jim Rich was forced out by the publisher, which resulted in a slashing of the newspaper’s staff by half. At the time of the sale, the Daily News had a circulation of over 200,000. However, it reached 2 million readers within the next decade. By the mid-2000s, it was the top circulated newspaper in the city.
After the sale of the Daily News, the paper has been owned by several companies, including Independent Media. The company’s other publications include the popular Metro, which is distributed in over 100 major cities throughout the world.
The Daily News is a print newspaper, but it offers a digital replica of the printed version. Its online edition is the most interactive and convenient way to read the news. Users can swipe between pages, share stories through email and download editions for offline reading. A Daily News app can be downloaded for use on mobile devices and tablets. During a coronavirus outbreak in 2016, journalists at the paper were able to work remotely.
The Daily News was originally known as Illustrated Daily News. Founded in 1919, it was the first daily tabloid newspaper in the United States. During its heyday, the publication was a popular source of lurid photographs and sensational coverage of crime.
As of October 2018, the Daily News has been owned by Tribune Publishing, a Chicago-based media company. The paper has been described as a “populist, flexible centrist” by the New York Times. According to the publisher, the Daily News’s stance is “high-minded.”
The Daily News is a popular platform for interacting with readers. The newspaper features an opinion section and prominent photographs for entertainment and news. Many of its reporters have received awards for feature writing and commentary. Other reporters, such as Clifford Ross and Katie Johnson, cover areas in the city, including Manhattan and the Bronx.
