The Daily News is the most widely distributed daily newspaper in the United States and is owned by Tronc, the newspaper division of the Tribune Company. The New York City-based newspaper has the highest circulation of any tabloid newspaper in the United States and is a major source of local news for the metropolitan area. Founded in 1919, it was the first tabloid to achieve nationwide success and became known for its sensational coverage of crime, scandal, and violence, as well as its lurid photographs and cartoons.
During its heyday in the early and mid-20th century, the Daily News was at odds with its rival, the right-wing New York Post, in a fierce circulation battle, but the News managed to maintain a loyal readership. At its peak, the Daily News had a circulation of over 200,000 daily copies and was one of the most influential newspapers in the United States.
The story of what happens when a community loses its local newspaper is a familiar one, and versions of it are playing out in communities across the United States as “news deserts” proliferate. In Death of the Daily News, Andrew Conte investigates this critical trend with perceptiveness and empathy. He shows how citizens are stepping in to fill the gap created by dwindling local media and reveals what it takes for a newspaper to survive in an age of social media. The book is a timely, thoughtful, and utterly worthwhile examination of the state of journalism in America.
