Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper with a history of being first-to-market with many innovations. It has a strong focus on New York City news and is known for its hard-hitting journalism. The paper currently has a large circulation and is owned by Tronc, a media company that owns several major U.S. newspapers.

Several sections comprise the newspaper including an editorial page written by the editor of the Daily News or members of its editorial board, opinion articles called “op-eds” and columns that express the personal opinions of columnists. Photographers and graphic artists provide illustrations to support the news stories. Journalists usually specialize in a certain subject area, often being referred to as a beat, and are assigned specific topics to cover. Editors and publishers oversee the publication and its content. Printers physically produce the printed version of the newspaper.
In addition to the main newspaper, the Daily News has several special editions each year such as the Yale-Harvard game issue and a commemorative issue of the start of the school year.
