For over a century, Daily News has provided the city with unrivaled news coverage of the world around it. The newspaper is famous for its New York City exclusives, political coverage, celebrity gossip, and sports. It is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States, and many alumni have gone on to prominent careers in journalism and public service.
In a time of massive disruption for journalism, local news is disappearing and creating “news deserts.” The city of McKeesport in southwestern Pennsylvania is the most recent victim of this phenomenon, losing its local newspaper in 2015. In Death of the Daily News, journalist Andrew Conte chronicles how citizens are attempting to make sense of their own community by becoming gatekeepers to information for their neighbors. The result is a fascinating experiment, and an obituary for local news that reads not as tragedy but as hope.

Designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, the building that housed the News from 1929 to 1995 was an official city landmark.
