The New York Daily News has had financial problems for decades. In 1993, it was purchased by Mortimer B. Zuckerman, who later sold it for $1 to Tribune Publishing (formerly known as Tronc). In 2017, The Daily News won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for reporting on the abuses of the New York Police Department in the eviction process.
The Daily News is a daily newspaper published in Jersey City, New Jersey. Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson, the paper is one of the most popular and longest-running daily newspapers in the United States. Its circulation peaked in 1947 at 2.4 million copies per day.
It was founded in 1919
The Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City each morning. It is the first daily paper of its kind to be published in the United States, and once boasted the largest circulation. It was founded in 1919 by Joseph Patterson as a subsidiary of the Tribune Company in Chicago. The newspaper’s controversial editorial policies, lurid photographs, and cartoons attracted a large readership, and it soon reached a circulation of 1.5 million. In the next decade, it would grow to over two million.
It moved downtown in 2011
After spending years planning the move downtown, the Daily News made a strategic decision to reorganize the business. It replaced geographic sales territories with business units and categories. It then reanalyzed the Naples market, studying how the newspaper covers the local community.
It was sold to Tronc in 2017
The sale of the New York Daily News to Tronc was announced in 2017. The company has since said that it would invest $200 million to relaunch the daily newspaper. This includes the newsroom and website. The news company has said that it hopes the new deal will increase its digital audience. Tronc reported that in the second quarter of 2018, it received 55 million unique visitors to its website. The company declined to comment on whether the sale will result in job cuts at the Daily News.

It is designed to cater to the time-strapped reader, and is widely distributed throughout KwaZulu-Natal province. Its coverage of the news is bold and independent, and it has an active online presence.
It has an opinion section
The Daily News has a long-standing tradition of offering an opinion section. Its editorial policy has been described as ‘flexibly centrist’, ‘high-minded’, and ‘populist.’ The newspaper was once a staunch Republican, supporting isolationism in the early years of World War II and conservative populism throughout the 1950s and 1960s. However, its editorial stance began to shift in the mid-1970s, when it gained a reputation as a moderate liberal alternative to the right-wing Post.
