The Daily News is an American newspaper based in Jersey City, New Jersey. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News. It was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format, and reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies a day. As of 2019,[update] it is the eleventh-highest circulated newspaper in the United States.
The most notable feature of the Daily News is that it was the first American tabloid to achieve mainstream success. Its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, cartoons and other entertainment features helped it to dominate the morning paper market in the 1920s.
A newspaper that was once the most widely read in the country, the Daily News has long been a fixture of New York City life. Its iconic newspaper building, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, is a landmark on the Manhattan skyline, and its TV station WPIX (now a Tribune property) remains an icon of the city’s television landscape.
This venerable institution is also a proud publisher of the Daily News E-dition, a replica of its printed version that is available on any device and provides a complete reading experience. Its user interface is simple to navigate, and it is a perfect companion to your daily newspaper.
