The Daily News
The Daily News is a morning daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It is the ninth most widely circulated newspaper in the United States. However, it has faced financial problems for decades and is now in the process of restructuring its operations. As of 2017, the company was owned by Tribune Publishing. In the meantime, it has been forced to cut employees and lay off some of them.
When it was founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first newspaper in the United States to be printed in tabloid format. This newspaper’s circulation rose from a few thousand copies in the early 1920s to nearly a million copies in the 1930s. One of the reasons for its popularity was its ability to attract readers with lurid photographs.
The Daily News was known for its editorial stance. From the 1940s through the 1960s, the paper promoted conservative populism. While it espoused social entrepreneurship, it also focused on political wrongdoing. Some of its most prominent features included its sports section and its opinion section.
Its circulation reached a peak in 1947 at 2.4 million copies a day. During this time, the Daily News was rivalry-bound with the right-wing New York Post. Although it continued to provide strong local news coverage, it could no longer compete with the Post’s circulation and readership.
Throughout the mid 1970s, the Daily News began to shift its editorial direction. As a result, the newspaper became a more liberal publication. With its liberal bent, it gained a reputation as a moderate liberal alternative to the right-wing New York Post.
A few years later, the Daily News began to adopt a more ambivalent stance. The company began to offer buyouts to its journalists. It was also a pioneer in the use of the Associated Press wirephoto service. Despite the changing editorial direction, the Daily News continued to be one of the top selling newspapers in the country.
The Daily News has won many awards, including 11 Pulitzer Prizes. The paper also has an interactive edition that allows users to view a digital replica of the newspaper on their computers and mobile devices. These tools include a special feature called “swipe” which lets users scroll through the pages of the newspaper in an efficient manner. Additionally, there is a special “share” feature that enables users to share stories through email.
Today, The Daily News is owned by Tribune Publishing. In addition to its own publications, the company owns twenty newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Miami Herald, the San Diego Union-Tribune, and the Seattle Times. Among its recent announcements, it has confirmed the closure of the Orlando Sentinel and the Morning Call in Allentown, Pa.
Founded in 1919, the Daily News has survived the test of time. After years of financial struggles, it is now owned by the media company Tribune Publishing, which acquired it for $1 in the early 2000s. Since then, the newspaper has been forced to make significant cuts to its workforce.
