The Daily News offers its readers the very best live coverage of national and local news, New York exclusives and politics. With an award-winning team of writers and columnists, it delivers the very latest news stories and opinions to you every day.

Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, it was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format and grew to become the largest-circulated newspaper in the world, peaking in 1947 with 2.4 million copies per day.

Its editors emphasized sensational reporting of crime, scandal and violence; lurid photographs; and cartoons and other entertainment features. It was a prominent user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers.

In the 1920s, it emphasized political wrongdoing and social intrigue, with such subjects as the Teapot Dome Scandal and the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII. The paper’s editorial stance was firmly Republican and for most of its history it supported isolationism.

The Daily News has an extensive network of bureaus throughout the city and is a major publisher of local and national news. It publishes a Sunday edition, and maintains local bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as at City Hall, One Police Plaza, and various state and federal courthouses.

For many years the Daily News fought a circulation battle with its rival tabloid the New York Post, and though it declined in popularity in the 1990s, it remains a major force in the newspaper industry. The paper is owned by Tronc, a Chicago-based media company.

On April 10, 2019 the Daily News announced that it was partnering with Independent Media to launch an online version of the newspaper. This partnership will allow the Daily News to reach a wide audience on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Currently, the Daily News is available in English and Hindi languages. The website is free to read, but it does not offer advertising.
