The daily news is a newspaper published every day, usually in full length. It is often a general newspaper, but may also cover specific topics such as politics, crime and celebrity. Often, the daily news is printed in color. It may also feature comics, advertisements and other entertainment features. Its name is derived from the fact that it provides an update on events that have taken place each day. It is usually available on both print and online.
The Yale Daily News is a student newspaper that has been published every weekday during the academic year since 1878. It is the nation’s oldest college daily and remains financially and editorially independent. The paper serves the communities of Yale and New Haven, Connecticut. In addition to the daily paper, YDN publishes WEEKEND, the Yale-Harvard Game Issue and special issues each year celebrating the community of students from Yale’s Indigenous, Black and AAPI communities in partnership with the respective student organizations and cultural centers.
In the early 1920s, the Daily News was one of America’s first successful tabloid newspapers. It attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs and cartoons and other entertainment features. Its early use of the Associated Press wirephoto service helped it develop a strong reputation for photography. It was also an influential paper in supporting isolationism during World War II. It shifted to an increasingly moderate-to-liberal stance in the 1980s, and became known as a counterpoint to the more conservative New York Post.
The News occupied its own building at 220 East 42nd Street from 1929 to 1995, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood and later modeled after the fictional Daily Planet building of the first two Superman films. The newspaper moved to its present location at 450 West 33rd Street, Manhattan West, in 1995, which still bears the News’s nickname of “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” A former branch of the New York Public Library is on site. Tronc purchased the News in 2017. The building was formerly the home of WPIX-TV and the New York City headquarters of CBS Radio.
