Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper founded in 1919 and once the largest-circulation paper in the United States. Originally published as the Illustrated Daily News, it attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and cartoons and other entertainment features. It was the first successful tabloid in America and remained the nation’s leading newspaper until its decline in the mid-20th century.
Today the newspaper is owned by Tronc and remains headquartered in the New York City landmark Daily News Building at 220 East 42nd Street (formerly known as Manhattan West) in the Bronx, which was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The newspaper maintains local offices in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island and has a bureau within One Police Plaza at City Hall. It also publishes a free afternoon newspaper called Sunday News.
The newspaper carries out extensive city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, and sports coverage. In addition, it is known for its political stance. In the 1940s and 1950s it espoused conservative populism, but in the 1990s it began shifting to a more moderately liberal position. Its editorial board is largely independent of its owners.
