The Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It was founded in 1919 and has a circulation of over 200,000 copies each day. However, it has been in financial trouble for years. In fact, in October of 2017, it was purchased by Tribune Publishing for one dollar.
The Daily News’ mission is to cover life in New York and give voice to the voiceless. Since its founding, it has won numerous awards for its coverage, including eleven Pulitzer Prizes. Besides its news coverage, the Daily News also features opinion pieces, comics, and prominent photographs of sports, entertainment, and politics.
The Daily News has been an important part of American history for many decades. As the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States, it was a major player in the news world. With its lurid photography and cartoons, the paper attracted readers.
At the end of the 20th century, the Daily News gained a reputation as a moderate, liberal alternative to the right-wing New York Post. During the next decade, the paper reached a peak circulation of two million. After that, the Daily News’ circulation began to decline. When the paper became a division of the Tribune Publishing corporation, the staff was cut in half. This meant that the newspaper no longer was able to hold the attention of the city.
Death of the Daily News is a compelling, poignant book that explores the loss of a local newspaper. Author Andrew Conte explains the importance of local journalism in a time of crisis. He explores the stages of grief that occur after a community loses its daily paper.
Conte draws on his experience as a journalist and reporter to analyze the effects of losing a daily paper on a town. He makes a powerful case for the importance of local journalism and sounds a warning about the societal impact of a growing number of news deserts in America.
Through its investigative reporting, The Daily News has been successful in digging into corruption, crime, and public affairs. It also has won several international reporting awards.
As a result of its reporting, the Daily News earned the nickname “New York’s Picture Newspaper.” Before its purchase by the Tribune Publishing company, the paper was known as WPIX, which was later sold to Emmis Communications. A former Daily News subsidiary, WPIX-TV, is still located in The News Building.
The newspaper is also available in an interactive edition. This is a digital replica of the print newspaper that allows for an enhanced reading and sharing experience. Users can swipe between pages, access interactive features, and share stories through email.
