Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper published in New York City. In its heyday in the 20th century, it was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived on crime and corruption reporting, served as the model for the fictional Daily Planet of the first two Superman films, and won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary and international reporting. In its current incarnation, the newspaper has a national and local focus, and is noted for its coverage of New York sports, especially the Yankees, Mets, and Giants. The paper is based in the historic Daily News Building on 42nd Street, which was designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood.
The Daily News serves its community through a number of print and digital outlets. The newspaper’s website features breaking news, politics, entertainment, sports, business and international news. It also offers opinion pieces and multimedia. The website’s archives of past news articles are available to its subscribers. The paper’s digital offerings include a tablet edition and mobile apps. The redesigned app allows users to swipe through the pages of the paper and share stories via social media.
A subscription to the Daily News includes access to the e-dition, an electronic replica of the printed newspaper that is available on all major devices. The e-dition is updated throughout the day and provides access to a searchable archive of all newspaper content. Subscribers can also view their local weather forecast, listen to audio versions of stories and watch Daily News-produced video.
The website of the Daily News is available in multiple languages, including Spanish, making it accessible to a larger audience. The site is also home to the ITN Video Archive, which contains a collection of British news footage dating back to 1955. The archive is a remarkable repository of cultural history.
In addition to the weekly online newspaper, News-2-You, the Daily News also publishes Breaking News articles each day. These shorter stories help students with diverse needs connect with events of the day and week through informational text. Both News-2-You and Breaking News support reading standards by allowing students to understand the main idea of each story and practice retelling and summarizing.
The New York Daily News is owned by Tribune Publishing, whose other properties include the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times. The newspaper has been in trouble for years, and shareholders approved a plan to sell the newspaper to Tronc, a media company, in May of this year. The sale is scheduled to close in October. Workers at the New York Daily News are urging shareholders to reject the deal and push for new owners of the newspaper. They have formed a union and launched multicity rallies. The hedge fund that owns the newspaper has been laying off staff and enacting cost-cutting measures since taking over the Daily News in 2017. A group of employees has filed a lawsuit against Tribune Publishing and its board of directors over the deal.
