The Daily News is a New York City newspaper founded on January 28, 1878. It is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and is financially independent. The News publishes daily during the academic year (Monday through Friday), a weekly newsmagazine, and multiple special editions.
The News covers a broad range of topics, including politics, culture, sports, and lifestyles. Its website features local and national news, sports, entertainment, and opinion. Its online editions include the News’s flagship digital publication, DNNY. The paper also maintains social media accounts.
Until the mid-1990s, the paper was headquartered at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The building was subsequently replaced by a sleek office tower at 450 West 33rd Street, known as Manhattan West. The News still maintains offices at One Police Plaza, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens, as well as several other state and federal courthouses.
In addition to its news and opinion pages, the Daily News carries advertising, classified ads, and comics. The newspaper also has an extensive calendar section, and its website includes a searchable database of New York City events. The News also has a large archive of its photographs and other historical materials.
The newspaper has a long tradition of investigative journalism and editorial activism. For example, it led the charge against capital punishment in New York in the 1970s, and was among the first to cover the genocide of the Armenian people in the 1990s. It has also covered controversial issues such as the use of nuclear weapons in Iran, the war on drugs, and racial discrimination by police.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the News was among the first to call for mandatory vaccinations and other public health initiatives. The News has also written critically about sexism and anti-Semitism. In 2019, the New York Daily News called on Mayor de Blasio to resign over his handling of the city’s response to the pandemic, and criticized the mayor’s decision to suspend the FDNY’s LGBT unit and halt the city’s homeless outreach efforts.
