The Daily News

Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the Daily News was the first American daily newspaper to be printed in tabloid format. Currently, it is the ninth most circulated newspaper in the United States, and prints 200,000 copies per day.

During the 1920s, it was known for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal. It also featured large and prominent photographs, entertainment and sports sections, as well as comics.

The paper was a major part of the New York media landscape, rivaling the rival New York Post in circulation. It was once a national brand, selling more than 2 million copies daily.

It was a self-proclaimed Republican newspaper for much of its history, but gradually changed its editorial stance over time, becoming more moderate-to-liberal during the 1990s. In 2017, it was sold to tronc, a Chicago-based media company.

Headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan, the newspaper was founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919. Originally published as the Illustrated Daily News, it became known as the Daily News in 1930 and was a subsidiary of the Tribune Company.

Today, the Daily News is a morning tabloid published in New York City and owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the former Tribune Company. It is published on the Web at and on iOS and Android devices.
