The Daily News

A news organization is a source of current and historical information about events, issues and people. It often includes opinion pieces and editorials that offer different perspectives on important topics.

The Daily News is a New York City tabloid newspaper founded in 1919. It was the first American newspaper to be printed in tabloid format and reached its highest circulation in 1947, when it was read by more than 2.4 million people every day. The paper is best known for its sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons. Its distinctive art deco Daily News Building with a large globe in the lobby was once one of the most iconic buildings in the world.

In the 1980s, the newspaper diversified its offerings with several successful additions, including the weekly African-American insert BET Weekend and the quarterly Caribbean Monthly. The Daily News also adapted to the changing times by publishing articles on the internet and developing a website. In 1996, the newspaper won a Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary for E.R. Shipp’s pieces on race, welfare and social issues and in 1998 for Mike McAlary’s cover story on police brutality against Haitian immigrant Abner Louima.

After losing subscribers to online and digital media, the newspaper began a period of decline in readership. In 2017, circulation halved again, and it was announced that the newspaper’s owner, billionaire Mort Zuckerman, was selling it to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. In September 2017, Tronc launched a radical cost-cutting campaign, firing staff and reducing the number of stories published each day.

Currently, the Daily News is owned by Tronc and publishes Monday through Friday. Its website features local crime & courts and sports, as well as national news and opinion. The newspaper has a print edition distributed on-site at select ASCO-sponsored and -cosponsored conferences and to domestic ASCO members.
