The Daily News
The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper that originated in Jersey City, New Jersey. It has been around since 1919 and was founded by Joseph Medill Patterson. It was one of the first newspapers in the United States to be printed in a tabloid format. It peaked in circulation in 1947 at 2.4 million copies a day.
The Daily News was a rival paper to the New York Post
The Daily News was a daily newspaper that published in New York City. Its position in the political spectrum was a bit more liberal than the Post’s. The Daily News’ editorial page leaned liberal on issues such as abortion, crime, and foreign policy, while the Post leans more conservative. It also published editorials promoting pro-Israel positions and anti-Castro sentiment.
In the early to mid-1970s, the Daily News shared a conservative viewpoint with the Chicago Tribune, while the Post was a liberal newspaper. However, the two papers reversed their ideologies in the late 1970s, after the New York Post was bought by Rupert Murdoch.
It moved downtown in 2011
When The Daily News moved downtown in 2011, the news organization changed its format to make more sense in the new area. The news organization created business units to focus on various segments, like real estate and transportation. Previously, the paper operated out of a building on State Street, but that building proved too large for its needs.
Since the move, the Dayton Daily News has been located at 1611 S. Main St., and is now slated to relocate to the Manhattan Building at 601 E. Third St. The Dayton Daily News will move to the new space in January. The new space is being renovated by Woodard Development.
It won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service
The New York Daily News won a Pulitzer Prize for public service for its series about the 9/11 attacks. The series covered the growing medical fallout of the attacks and documented the effects of atomized air. More than 12,000 emergency responders were sickened after breathing the air from the World Trade Center, which forced the government to review its response and create new services and benefits for survivors and rescuers.
In addition to the Daily News’s award, The Washington Post also won a Pulitzer Prize for public service. The Pulitzer judges recognized the work of more than a hundred journalists for their coverage of the U.S. Capitol’s insurrection, the failure of Capitol security, and the aftermath of the event.
It has been sold to Tronc
The Daily News has been sold to Tronc, a company that previously owned the Chicago Tribune. The company will take over the daily newspaper’s operations and its printing plant in Jersey City. It will also assume responsibility for the paper’s pension liability. The News will retain its nameplate, but Tronc hopes to turn it into a profitable digital business.
Zuckerman had put the paper up for auction in February, hoping to receive at least $200 million for the paper. But in August, he dropped that plan. The paper will now be owned by Tronc, which will distribute its content to ten major U.S. markets. The Daily News will remain under the leadership of Arthur Browne, who has agreed to stay as publisher until the end of 2017. He will report to Tronc President Timothy Knight.
