For more than six decades, The Daily News has been a New York City landmark and national icon. Founded in 1919, the newspaper has grown to become one of the nation’s largest newspapers. It is published from its headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan.
The paper’s iconic building is a landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It is home to the Daily News’ headquarters as well as WPIX, a former News subsidiary which remains in the building today.
In 1947, the Daily News became the first American newspaper to be printed in tabloid format. This changed the way the newspaper was distributed, allowing for faster delivery and more distribution. Its peak circulation was 2.4 million copies per day.
Although it shifted to a more liberal political stance after the 1970s, the News has retained its populist heritage. The paper has been a strong advocate for New York’s welfare state and the social safety net, and has been critical of the government’s response to the financial crisis and other issues.
As of January 2019, The News has a circulation of over two million copies per day. It is the 11th-highest-circulated newspaper in the U.S. Its advertising is largely driven by subscriptions, although it does have some ad revenue from local advertisers.
What’s more, it is the leading news provider for New York City residents. It is published in a tabloid format with large and prominent photographs.
The Daily News is an English-language newspaper of general circulation in the New York metropolitan area and its vicinity, published every day. It is published by the Chicago Tribune Company, which also owns a number of other regional newspapers.
It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News and was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format. It reached its highest circulation in 1947, with 2.4 million copies per day.
Historically, the Daily News was a staunchly Republican paper. During World War II, it supported isolationism and was known for its anti-German bias. In the 1980s and 1990s, the News became a moderately liberal alternative to its sister publication, the Chicago Tribune.
In a 2005 New York Times article, The Daily News editor John Bruton wrote that the paper’s “editorial stance is flexible but centrist.” This is in contrast to the stance of other major American newspapers, such as the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.
