Founded in 1919, The Daily News is one of the largest newspapers in New York City. With a circulation of over 200,000, it has become one of the largest newspapers in the country. Its coverage of New York City and the surrounding area has made it a leading news source for many years. It has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes. It is also known for its coverage of sports, crime, and local news.
For years, The Daily News was the dominant newspaper in the city. The publication boasted a circulation of 2.4 million copies per day in 1947. During this time, the paper gained a reputation for its investigative reporting, particularly on crime. The paper’s coverage of corruption and social intrigue helped it win numerous awards for writing and photography.
In the late 1940s, The Daily News espoused a conservative populist stance. It was a staunchly Republican newspaper for more than five decades. In the mid 1970s, the Daily News began to shift its editorial emphasis. It became more liberal and became a moderate alternative to the conservative New York Post. It also developed a large staff of photographers.
The newspaper became one of the first newspapers in the United States to use the Associated Press wire photo service. It remained in the building until the late 1990s, when it moved to another location on West 33rd Street.
When the Daily News moved, dozens of its longtime staff members sat on the bench. Legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon was among the mainstays. The newspaper also developed a staff of cartoonists and photographers. The newspaper became one of the first newspapers to adopt the controversial “tabloid” size.
In 1995, The Daily News moved from its former headquarters on East 42nd Street to its new headquarters on West 33rd Street. The Daily News Building became a national landmark. It was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
The Daily News was a leader in the field of journalism, and its staff has won several awards for their writing and advertising. In 2017, The Daily News won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. In recent years, the newspaper has been in financial trouble. This has led to the closure of several of its newspapers.
The newspaper was purchased by Tribune Publishing in 2017 for $1. It has since begun to impose pay cuts and furloughs on employees. In addition, the newspaper has announced that it will no longer print any editions until February. Its website has become one of the most comprehensive in the nation. It offers readers a digital replica of the print edition and provides an interactive experience for reading. It is also available on computers and mobile devices. It features a variety of interactive tools, such as emailing stories and sharing stories through mobile devices.
The Daily News has been a leading voice for the voiceless. It has been one of the first newspapers to call out the abuse of power in the United States, and it has made many contributions to the fight against corruption. The newspaper has also given comfort to the afflicted.
