Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 and currently published in New York City. It is known for its bold and evocative photographs, intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip and classified ads, comics, a sports section, and an opinion page. The paper has been described as a “flexibly centrist” newspaper with a populist legacy, and a high-minded if not particularly liberal editorial stance.
The newspaper was the first to use a tabloid format in the United States, and it achieved its highest circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies per day. In the decades prior to World War II, the News was strongly Republican, supporting isolationism. After the war, the News became more liberal in its stance and has since evolved into a centrist and occasionally progressive paper.
Several of the News’s stories have received national attention, including the story about the “Good Samaritan” who died after stopping to help a stranded motorist, and a series about the dangers of prostitution in the United States. The paper also drew considerable attention for its coverage of the AIDS epidemic, and in particular the story about the death of gay actor Corey Haim.
In addition to its daily newspapers, the News operates local bureaus in Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, at City Hall, within One Police Plaza, and the various state and federal courthouses in New York City. The News also owns television and radio stations, with headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West) in the former Daily News Building designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
A subsidiary of the News, WPIX-TV (Channel 11 in New York City), was the first television station to be branded as a name brand, and its call letters were based on the name of the Daily News. The News also owned a radio station called WFAN-AM in the early days of radio, and later sold that property to CBS Radio.
