A New York City tabloid that once was the nation’s largest-circulation newspaper, the Daily News, will close its physical newsroom. The move comes as the paper’s new owner, Alden Capital, continues to impose draconian cuts on the 102-year-old paper.
The Daily News was founded in 1919 as a tabloid and quickly became a major force in the United States’ media landscape. In the 1920s, the newspaper found abundant subject matter: political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome Scandal and social intrigue like the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication. The paper was also an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and built up a large staff of photographers.
In addition to a large number of photographs, the Daily News featured intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and a sports section. The paper was a major competitor of its rival, the New York Post, but eventually lost out to it in circulation.
For years, the Daily News struggled to keep up with its much larger rival, the New York Post. However, it was never able to match the Post’s sensational headlines and flamboyant style. But the Daily News did maintain a loyal readership and continued to cover a range of local and national issues, including crime and politics.
Today’s Daily News is the successor to an earlier New York tabloid that operated between 1855 and 1906, called the Illustrated Daily News. It was the first daily newspaper to be printed in tabloid format and reached its peak circulation of 2.4 million copies per day in 1947. The Daily News is the oldest newspaper in New York City and one of the most prominent newspapers in the United States.
The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily and has been financially and editorially independent since its founding on January 28, 1878. It publishes every weekday when school is in session and serves the Yale and surrounding communities. In addition to the daily edition, the News produces a Friday supplement called WEEKEND and several special issues throughout the year in collaboration with the campus community, including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and the Commencement Issue.
