The Daily News was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, publisher of the Chicago Tribune. Its launch was part of a consolidation in the newspaper industry, aimed at reducing labor costs by eliminating duplication. The Daily News was the first newspaper in New York City to publish a tabloid edition, and became famous for sensational pictorial coverage. It was a huge success, and by the mid-1930s it had reached its peak circulation.

Its success can partly be attributed to the Daily News’ willingness to go a step further than its competitors in the pursuit of attention-grabbing headlines. An example was the newspaper’s front page in 1928, when a reporter strapped a small camera to his leg and photographed Ruth Snyder in the electric chair being electrocuted for murder; the next day the paper published the photograph under the headline, “DEAD!”

In the 1970s, the Daily News began losing ground to its competitors in New York, especially The New York Post, which began aggressively covering local news and sports. By the mid-1980s, the Daily News was struggling and in serious financial trouble. In March 1991, controversial British media mogul Robert Maxwell purchased the Daily News and its sister paper the Daily Mirror. He brought in several young managers to turn around the newspaper, and in 1993 it again regained its position as one of the country’s top-selling newspapers.

By the 21st century, however, circulation had dropped below its pre-1980s high mark and the newspaper struggled to remain profitable. In 2017, it was sold to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company.

Throughout the year, The Daily News produces special issues that celebrate Yale and New Haven’s diverse communities. These include the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, the Commencement Issue and the First Year Issue. The News also publishes a weekly magazine and a number of online supplements.
