Daily news is a type of newspaper published each day. It covers a wide variety of subjects and can include news, features, entertainment, sports, and opinion sections. The newspaper may also contain classified ads, cartoons, comics, and other entertainment features. It is published in the morning or evening, with an emphasis on news of local interest and on sports events.
Founded in 1919, by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, it was the first U.S. daily paper printed in tabloid format. The paper’s circulation rose steadily, reaching 2.4 million copies a day in 1947, the highest of any American newspaper.
It was a leading American newspaper until 2017 when it was sold to a Chicago-based media company, Tronc. The Daily News has been described as “flexibly centrist” with a “high-minded, if populist legacy.”
The daily news is available in print and online versions. Its digital edition, called the Daily News E-dition, is a replica of the print version and is available on computers and mobile devices. It includes a simple user interface and a variety of interactive features designed to delight the daily news lover.
The paper’s headquarters are in 450 West 33rd Street, a former railroad station that was the headquarters of the Associated Press until 1995. The building is also home to WPIX-TV, a television station that became part of the News in 1948. The building is a major New York City landmark, designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It is the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.
