A daily news is a newspaper that publishes every day and contains news about current events that are of interest to the general public. It also provides opinion pieces and editorials that offer different points of view about the events being reported. A daily news may contain local, national, or international news and is usually available in both print and digital format.
The New York Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper that was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News. It is the oldest continually published newspaper in the United States and was the first daily printed in tabloid format. The paper reached its peak circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies, and is still one of the largest newspapers in the United States. The paper focuses on city news coverage, celebrity gossip, sports, and a variety of other topics.
In addition to the main paper, the Daily News publishes several weekly supplements and special issues each year. These include the Friday issue known as WEEKEND, the Yale Daily News Magazine and several annual special issues celebrating Yale’s Indigenous, Black, AAPI and Latinx communities in collaboration with those community centers and affiliated student groups. The News is also the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and has been financially and editorially independent since its founding on January 28, 1878. Many alumni of the News have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public life, including William F. Buckley, Sargent Shriver, Lan Samantha Chang, John Hersey, Garry Trudeau and Jacob Weisberg.
Despite a decline in its print editions, the Daily News continues to maintain strong online presence and digital subscriptions, which are growing rapidly. Its website receives nearly a million visitors per day, and the New York Daily News app has been downloaded over 1.3 million times.
Amid the rapid changes underway at Tribune Publishing, owned by cost-slashing hedge fund Alden Global Capital, the New York Daily News’s staff has a case of the jitters. The publisher has imposed buyouts and cuts that have reverberated throughout the newsroom.
YDN has launched a digital archive of its print editions, which can be accessed through this site. Users can search for specific articles, read digitized versions of the entire publication and download full-text issues in PDF format. The archive is available free of charge to anyone interested in reading the News.
