The daily news is a newspaper that is published on a day-to-day basis and provides general news. It usually contains a variety of articles, including those related to politics, business, and sports. The daily news may also contain entertainment, comics, and classified advertisements. The Daily News was first printed in 1919, and it was the first tabloid newspaper to be successful. It was founded by Joseph Medill Patterson and was a subsidiary of the Tribune Company of Chicago. The Daily News attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. By 1930 its circulation had risen to 1,520,000, and it reached 2,000,000 in the next decade.
The News has long been locked in a fierce battle for readers with its even more sensational rival, the New York Post. Its famed screamer in 1975—”Ford to City: Drop Dead!”—is considered one of the most memorable and sensational headlines in the history of newspapers. The News has also won acclaim for its photos, and was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1920s. The paper has its own television station, WPIX, and an FM radio simulcast of its AM namesake. Its headquarters is the News Building at 450 West 33rd Street, which straddles the tracks heading into Pennsylvania Station.
Today, the Daily News is owned by Tronc, and it publishes in print and online. Its website includes the daily online edition of the newspaper, as well as a number of other online-only publications, including a popular blog. It also maintains offices in New York City, including at City Hall and within One Police Plaza. The Daily News is a founding member of the International Federation of Newspaper Publishers (Federation internationale de l’industrie des médias). It has won numerous awards and honors for its journalism.
