The New York Daily News was the first newspaper to be printed in tabloid format in the United States, founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson and a subsidiary of Tribune Publishing. It became known as the New York Daily News in 1923 and attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime, scandal and violence, lurid photographs and cartoons. It reached its peak circulation in 1947 and was the eleventh highest circulated newspaper in the country. The paper ceased publication in 1906. Today’s Daily News is not connected to the earlier newspaper, though the name has been used for several other newspapers since then.
Daily News offers news articles on current affairs, sports and entertainment with a global perspective. It also provides information about government jobs and other career opportunities in the city. Its team of journalists also writes opinion pieces on a wide range of topics from politics to social issues, and it covers sports, business, and culture in the city. The site also offers a wide selection of classifieds for local and national jobs and listings.

As digital subscriptions increase, the market for traditional newspapers continues to decline. Circulation of newspaper print versions is down, and many have merged or closed altogether. In 2022, the top 50 daily newspapers had combined print and digital circulation of 20.9 million weekday and Sunday readers, which was down 8% from 2021 and down 10% in just one year. This figure excludes some smaller newspapers, which often do not report their online traffic to the industry measurement company Comscore.
Andrew Conte has written an important book about what happens when a newspaper dies in a community, and its societal consequences.

This is an essential read for anyone interested in the future of journalism.
