The Daily News
Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper and had the largest circulation of any paper at one point. It became known for its sensational crime and scandal coverage, lurid photographs, classified ads, comics and other entertainment features, and intense city news coverage. It was the primary rival of the even more sensational rival New York Post until the turn of the 21st century, when it began to see its circulation decline.
It was purchased by Tronc, a media company, in 2017. In January 2022, it was announced that the Daily News would cease publication in April and close after 122 years of printing. The Daily News’s last edition was published on April 30, 2019.
In the beginning, the newspaper was an independent, conservative-populist voice. In the 1940s, it embraced isolationism during World War II, and later, it adopted a more liberal populist stance. In the early 1980s, the Daily News began shifting to a moderately centrist position. It drew criticism for supporting Bill de Blasio’s proposed sanctuary city policy, and it was accused of favoring the rich over the poor.
As its name implies, the Daily News is based in New York City and has offices across the city and the Bronx. It also maintains a radio station in the city and a satellite office in Queens. It was the first newspaper to have a photo desk, and its first photos included images of the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. The Daily News also was the first newspaper to have an extensive travel section.
