Daily News is an American newspaper based in New York City. It is the ninth most widely circulated paper in the United States, and was the first daily printed in tabloid format. It reaches more than 200,000 copies a day, and is owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company, as of 2017.
The newspaper industry includes a wide range of publications, including general-interest newspapers, tabloids, and news magazines. In addition to news and information, newspapers also publish opinion columns (called “editorials”), criticism, advertising, weather forecasts, obituaries, birth and death notices, classified ads, sports news, and entertainment features such as crosswords, horoscopes, and editorial cartoons.
A newspaper can be published as a print or electronic publication, and is available for sale from newsstands, bookstores, libraries, and the Internet. The paper is usually distributed to residents of a particular community, or region (local newspaper).
Some papers also provide online versions that can be read at any time of day, and often include a variety of other content such as blogs, photo galleries, obituaries, and audio and video clips. These online services are generally free, and may be accessed through a computer with an Internet connection, a telephone, or a handheld device such as a smartphone.
There are two broad categories of newspaper: local newspapers and national newspapers. A local newspaper typically serves a city, county, or region; and it is published daily. Some local newspapers are also specialized, serving a particular subject, such as sports, business, or the arts.
National newspapers are generally published twice a day, with evening and weekend editions. They are primarily written by professional journalists, who report on a wide range of topics and often specialize in a particular subject area. Journalists are hired as reporters, feature writers, columnists, photographers, and art directors.
Many newspapers are independently run, but some are owned by corporations or governments. The profitability of a newspaper depends on its circulation and advertising revenue. A newspaper’s reliance on these sources can make it difficult to keep its staff and operating expenses in check.
The New York Daily News is a newspaper that is published in New York City and is the ninth most circulated daily newspaper in the United States, reaching more than 200,000 copies a day. The newspaper was founded in 1919 and is owned by tronc, the former publishing operations of the Tribune Company.
Although it is a self-proclaimed Republican newspaper for much of its history, the Daily News has shifted to a more moderate-to-liberal stance in recent years. Until recently it was a strong rival to the right-rated New York Post, but it has lost ground to the Post over the years.
Despite its decline, the New York Daily News continues to be a popular paper and has been a leader in advancing social and political causes. It is a member of the Pulitzer Prize Foundation and has won eleven awards for journalism.
The News has also earned numerous honors for its work in public service and the environment. It has won the National Newspaper Award for Excellence in Environmental Reporting and is a charter member of the Green Papers Project.
