The Daily News
Founded in 1878, the Daily News is an English-language newspaper published every weekday afternoon during the academic year at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. It is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and remains financially and editorially independent. Its staff of writers and editors include many well-known journalists, columnists, and contributors. The paper is distributed throughout campus and the city of New Haven. The News also publishes a weekly Friday supplement known as WEEKEND, the Daily News Magazine and several special issues each year including the Yale-Harvard game day issue and the Commencement Issue. In addition, the newspaper’s website features a variety of multimedia content, including video.
The Daily News is a member of the American Society of Newspaper Editors, the National Association of Black Journalists and the International Women’s Press Foundation. The News has won numerous awards for its journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing in 1996. The paper’s editorial stance has been described as “flexibly centrist,” with a high-minded, populist legacy.
In addition to its daily print edition, the newspaper maintains a website and several television and radio channels. It operates bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan, as well as at City Hall, within One Police Plaza, and at various state and federal courthouses in New York City. The News also owns what was once its AM radio affiliate, WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City), whose call letters were based on the paper’s nickname as “New York’s Picture Newspaper”, and has its headquarters in the landmark 220 East 42nd Street building designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood and now known as Manhattan West.
