The Daily News
During the twentieth century, the Daily News was one of the most popular newspapers in the United States. By the end of World War II, the circulation was approaching $15 million, making it one of the top 15 publishing companies in the country. By then, the paper was owned by Victor F. Lawson, who had taken full control of the paper in 1888. In addition, it had a staff of over 2,000 people, making it the largest newspaper in the city. The paper also printed a Sunday News.
During the early 1900s, the Daily News employed a number of prominent photographers. It was also one of the first newspapers to use the Associated Press wire photo service. After Lawson died in 1925, the paper continued to be important in the local news scene.
The Daily News also featured a large sports section. It was one of the first newspapers to use a full page, large-format photograph in its sports section. The paper also won several awards for its photography and advertising.
In the mid-1970s, the Daily News began a gradual shift in its editorial position. From the 1940s to the 1960s, the paper espoused a conservative populist position. It also supported political isolationism during the early days of World War II.
The Daily News eventually reached peak circulation in 1947, when it pumped out 2.4 million copies a day. Throughout its history, the Daily News has won eleven Pulitzer Prizes. It has also won numerous awards for feature writing and commentary. It is also considered a “high-minded” newspaper. The New York Times describes the Daily News’s editorial stance as “populist” and “flexibly centrist.”
After being bought by Tronc, a Chicago-based media company, in 2017, the Daily News was purchased by Tribune Publishing. During the transition, the newsroom was slashed in half. The newsroom has been home to some of the most well-known journalistic giants of the twentieth century, including William F. Buckley, Jimmy Cannon, Robert York, and Bill Gallo.
The Daily News is now owned by Tribune Publishing, a family-owned multi-platform content company. In addition to publishing The Daily News, the company also publishes 20 other prominent newspapers. As of 2017, The Daily News’s circulation has dropped to more than 200,000 copies a day. The paper still publishes an online edition, which allows users to access news from anywhere on any computer or mobile device. Users can also download the newspaper for offline reading. The Daily News’s interactive edition is the most convenient way to read the paper. It features interactive features, such as swiping through the newspaper pages, sending stories through email, and sharing stories with other users. The Daily News’s online edition is powered by a staff of professional journalists.
In addition to its online edition, the Daily News also has a radio station, which was formerly called WPIX-FM. The station is now owned by CBS Radio. The station was nicknamed “New York’s Picture Newspaper” and served as a model for the Daily Planet in the 1994 Superman film.
