Daily News is the morning tabloid newspaper of the city of New York. It was the first successful tabloid in the United States, and reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies in 1947. During its heyday in the 1920s, The Daily News became known for its brawny metro tabloid style and scoops, including coverage of crime, scandal, violence, social intrigue (such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that precipitated the British monarch’s abdication), cartoons, and entertainment features. It won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and feature writing, and is the model for the fictional tabloid of the first two Superman movies.
The paper was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. It changed its name to The Daily News in 1924, and in 1929 opened a headquarters building on East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an architectural landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The News moved to 450 West 33rd Street in 1995, but the former building is still called the “News Building.”
Currently the newspaper is owned by Tribune Publishing and its subsidiaries. The newspaper is headquartered in the city of New York, and it has a local and national audience. The newspaper features political coverage, as well as local and international news. The paper also has sports and celebrity sections. Its award-winning writers and columnists cover New York exclusives, politics, sports and the latest gossip. The paper also has a reputation for its sports coverage of the Yankees, Mets, and Giants.
In its heyday in the 20th century, The Daily News was the dominant tabloid of the city, and its editors and staffers were often referred to as “The News Boys.” The paper was the basis for the movie The Paper, starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. It has been in financial trouble for decades. A real estate developer and media mogul, Mortimer Zuckerman, bought the newspaper in 1993. He sold it to Tribune Publishing, now Tronc, in 2017 for $1.
