Founded in 1919, the Daily News is one of the largest circulation newspapers in the United States. At its peak in 1947, the paper had a circulation of 2.4 million copies a day. It was the first tabloid newspaper to be successful in the U.S. and drew readers with its sensational crime coverage.
After many years of financial struggles, the Daily News was bought out of bankruptcy in 1993 by Mortimer B. Zuckerman, a real estate developer and media mogul.
