The Daily News was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News. It was a precursor to the Los Angeles Times. The newspaper was owned by the Tribune Company of Chicago. The paper was later bought by Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. The paper was also published in Los Angeles, San Diego, Philadelphia, and Chicago.
The Daily News had its headquarters at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan. The paper was a major user of the Associated Press wirephoto service during the 1930s. In 1995, the newspaper relocated to a new location on West 33rd Street. In the same year, the paper closed four other Tribune newspapers. It also announced the closure of The Orlando Sentinel and The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa. Despite its financial troubles, the Daily News continued to be one of the nation’s largest newspapers.
The Daily News also features an opinion section, a comics section, and intense coverage of the city’s news. The newspaper has won numerous awards for its writing, photography, and advertising. It also has won several Pulitzer Prizes for its commentary. The Daily News has been described as “high-minded” and “flexibly centrist” by the New York Times.
The Daily News was the model for the tabloid in the 1994 film “The Paper.” It also served as a model for the newspaper in the Superman film. In the film, dozens of Daily News mainstays sat on a bench in front of the newspaper’s headquarters. Legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon sat on one of the benches.
