Founded on January 28, 1878, the Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper. It is independently owned and financially and editorially independent, publishing Monday through Friday during the academic year in support of the Yale community and serving the greater New Haven area. The News publishes special issues in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups, as well as the weekly WKND news supplement.
The New York Daily News, often shortened to the Daily News, is an American tabloid newspaper based in Manhattan. It was the first U.S. daily published in tabloid format and is currently owned by tronc, the media holding company of Tribune Publishing. The newspaper’s history is largely tied to the rise of urban journalism and American popular culture.
Today’s Daily News is much larger than its predecessor, and features intense city news coverage as well as celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics and a sports section. It also has an extensive editorial page, a nationally syndicated column and a national political page. The paper is known for its investigative reporting, especially in the area of police abuse and corruption. It won a Pulitzer Prize in 1998 for its expose of New York City’s housing police practice of evictions.
The newspaper’s current owner, Mortimer Zuckerman, a media mogul, purchased the Daily News in 1993 and turned it into a tabloid, boosting its circulation to about two million copies per day. In 2017, the Daily News lost money and was sold to a Chicago media company, Tronc.
