Founded in 1919, the Daily News is an American newspaper based in New York City. It is the first U.S. daily newspaper printed in tabloid format, reaching its peak circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies per day.
One of the most popular newspapers in the United States, the Daily News is known for its lurid and often sensational coverage of crime and scandal, large photographs, and other entertainment features. It also boasts an extensive opinion section, and a devoted sports section.
It is owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company, and is headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan. Its website has a traffic-generating “Daily News E-dition” that replicates the paper’s design and contents to provide a seamless online experience.
The Daily News Building, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, is a notable landmark in the city’s skyline and was the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films. The News also owns WPIX-TV, a local television station, and operates several other publications and services throughout the city.
