In the early 20th century, the Daily News was the first successful U.S. tabloid newspaper, and attracted readers with sensational crime and scandal stories, lurid photographs and cartoons. It was locked in a circulation battle with its more prestigious rival, the New York Post, and reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies per day in 1947.
Today, the Daily News is owned by Sample News Group of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. It has 17 daily newspapers, more than 35 weekly and specialty magazines and a network of websites. The company uses a “inverted pyramid” editing style, with the most important information presented at the top of the article and less-important details lower down.
The daily newspaper market is facing tough times as more and more people choose to read news on their phones or computers instead of visiting a physical paper edition. In the United States, average minutes per visit to newspaper websites fell to 1 minute and 30 seconds in Q4 of 2022. This represents a 43% decline since Q4 of 2014.
