The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper with a circulation of over 200,000. Its interactive version offers users the latest digital tools to engage with the news. It is also available for mobile devices. This version is especially convenient for readers who may have limited time or are on the go. In addition to its regular features, the Daily News includes an opinion section and a sports section.
The Daily News is owned by Independent Media, a company that publishes twenty newspapers throughout the country. Their circulation is one of the highest in the United States. The Daily News has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes.
It is one of the largest circulated newspapers in the five boroughs of New York. It features prominent photographs for news and entertainment. They also have an opinion formers section, classified ads and a section dedicated to celebrity gossip. Despite the decline of print publications, the Daily News has survived as a top selling daily newspaper.
For more than sixty years, the Daily News was a staunchly conservative newspaper. After the paper was sold to Tronc, its circulation began to drop. Although the Daily News continued to provide strong coverage of local and political news, it lost its grip on the city. As a result, it became a “local news desert” in many communities. But with the advent of new digital technology, it is possible to revive the newspaper.
The New York Daily News was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News. It later changed its name to the Daily News after a few months. At its peak, it had a circulation of 2.4 million copies a day. With sensational coverage of crime, the paper attracted readers.
Among the Daily News’ biggest achievements is its extensive use of photography. One of the first papers in the United States to implement the Associated Press wirephoto service, the Daily News devoted much attention to photography. During the early years of World War II, the Daily News supported isolationism. However, its stance was described as “flexibly centrist” by the New York Times.
When the Daily News was sold to Tronc, it became part of a larger media conglomerate. Although it has faced competition from the New York Post, the Daily News has managed to survive. By 2016, it had a circulation of more than 200,000.
Rather than being a negative force, however, the death of the Daily News is an example of a tragic loss. As Andrew Conte’s book, Death of the Daily News, demonstrates, it is important to recognize that local news is still important, and that it can be restored.
Conte is an insightful, well-informed journalist who understands that local journalism is important. His book shows readers how some people are trying to rebuild local news. He has great empathy for those affected by the loss of their local paper. And he offers practical advice for those looking to revitalize the local newspaper business.
With his skill at exposing the weaknesses of traditional top-down journalism, Conte’s work is a vital reminder that communities still need their local news.
