Daily News History
The New York Daily News was the United States’s first tabloid newspaper and was printed in a large, full-color format, and it was among the most popular newspapers in the country for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, cartoons, and other entertainment features. It also provided strong local news and sports coverage, and was a major rival of the New York Post, which was then the largest-circulating newspaper in the country.
During its first decades, the Daily News was a conservative publication with a populist agenda and a conservative editorial stance. In the 1940s and 1950s, it favored isolationism and the defense of the United States during World War II. In the 1980s and 1990s, it changed its stance and became a moderately liberal publication.
Today, the Daily News is a major player in media and communications with a wide range of products. It operates its own radio station, WPIX-FM, and television channel, WPIX, as well as a number of local bureaus in the city. It also maintains an office in One Police Plaza, at City Hall, and at various state and federal courthouses.
It is a member of the News Corporation, a media conglomerate that owns and operates several other newspapers in the United States, as well as a number of other businesses. It has a total of five divisions: print, broadcast, advertising, Internet and digital media services.
The Daily News is the primary source for news, information and analysis about the Great Lakes region of the United States and Canada. It is curated by staff of the Great Lakes Commission and is delivered daily to a large number of subscribers, who receive an email digest of relevant articles.
