The Daily News
The Daily News was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson and was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. It reached peak circulation in 1947, averaging 2.4 million copies a day. It specialized in sensational stories of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs and cartoons.
It also featured a lively section of entertainment articles, including “The Front Page” and “Late Night with David Letterman.” By the end of the 20th century, the Daily News had become one of the most popular newspapers in the country.
In the ensuing decades, the paper’s circulation and subscribers began to decline. However, its web audience continues to grow.
The New York Daily News, as it is now known, is owned by the Chicago-based Tribune Company. The paper is published in New York City and features local, national and international news.
It has three radio stations (WPIX, WFAN and WCBS), and is the flagship property of the company’s newspaper group. It also owns local television stations in the New York area and has a number of regional newspapers.
Press clippings are short news stories that have been cut or clipped from a newspaper or magazine. They may be a single, digitized story or a series of articles that have been digitally arranged into a single clipping.
They are usually posted online, and are sometimes printed in a newspaper or magazine. These clippings are a great way to find interesting news stories about a specific topic or subject.
