Daily news is a broad term used to describe newspapers that publish at least four times a week. This may include newspapers published by national or local governments and other government-owned media outlets, as well as publications of religious and educational organizations.
The ‘Daily News’ is one of the most popular newspapers in the country and is also a leading player in the digital space. Its E-dition – the interactive equivalent of its print counterpart – is the most convenient, complete and cost-effective way to read your favorite newspaper.
Founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News, it was a pioneer of its time and remains the only American paper to achieve a circulation of over 2 million copies per day.
Its most impressive claim to fame is its ability to capture the attention of its readers, who are enthralled with its high-quality photography and reporting. In addition to its print edition, it maintains a number of regional bureaus throughout the city. It is known for its colorful cover art and high-impact headlines.
Aside from its print publication, the Daily News is also notable for its television and radio properties. The aforementioned TV station, WPIX, was the first and most successful of its type in the United States, and remains today as part of Tribune’s portfolio. The News’s radio sibling, WFAN, is a popular New York area FM radio station and is the brainchild of Emmis Communications.
In the ‘Daily News’s heyday, its staff consisted of several thousand journalists, most of whom worked at the original downtown office at 450 West 33rd Street, where they were housed in a giant globe and weather instrument. The building was designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood in the ’30s and is now part of Manhattan West.
