Daily news is a collection of the most important events from the day in a short, easy to digest package. These podcasts are the perfect way to stay on top of current affairs without having to sit down to watch TV or read the newspaper. They cover a wide variety of topics from politics to culture and even the latest celebrity gossip. They also cover a wide range of global issues and provide a solid background to what is going on around the world.
Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, the New York Daily News was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format. The paper found abundant subject matter in the sex scandals, political wrongdoing, and social intrigue of the 1920s, and its sensational coverage helped make it a popular newspaper. It was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers.
The Daily News was the most widely read newspaper in the United States and at one point had the highest circulation of any daily publication in the world. The paper was the first to report on the assassination of President William McKinley in 1912, and its story on the sinking of the RMS Titanic the following year is considered to be among the most significant newspaper reports ever written. It was also the first newspaper to publish a photograph of the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the only major American daily to run photographs from the front line of the fighting in the Korean War.
A trove of stories from the past 100 years of the New York Daily News has been published online by the News Corporation. The archive includes tens of thousands of articles, photos, cartoons, and other materials from the Daily News archives. The original headquarters of the newspaper at 450 West 33rd Street in Manhattan, built in 1931, straddled the railroad tracks that led into Pennsylvania Station. The building is now part of Manhattan West. The News has local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, as well as in City Hall and at One Police Plaza. In 1948, it established WPIX (Channel 11 in New York City), whose call letters were based on its nickname, and later purchased an AM radio station, WFAN-FM, which is now owned by CBS Radio as the New York Daily News radio network.
