What Is a Daily Newspaper?

A daily newspaper is a publication that is published each day other than a Saturday, Sunday or holiday. It may be published in any language and may be printed or distributed in whole or in part. Daily newspapers may be printed on paper or in electronic format and may contain any number of pages. Often, they include photographs, maps and charts. A daily newspaper typically covers politics, current events and local news, although it also may cover sports, business, entertainment and the arts.

Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News is an American tabloid newspaper that currently has the ninth largest circulation in the United States. It is a member of the Tronc family, and is headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan. The News is noted for its focus on crime and lurid details of violent incidents, as well as its use of photography to illustrate stories.

The Daily News carries on the legacy of its predecessor, the Illustrated Daily News, which was the first U.S. daily newspaper to be printed in tabloid format. Its editorial stance has traditionally been moderate to liberal, and is often contrasted with the right-wing New York Post.

In addition to its main daily newspaper, the News publishes several specialty weekly publications and several special issues throughout the year. These include the Yale Daily News Magazine, a Friday supplement called WKND, and special issues for various Yale-Harvard games and other campus events. The Yale Daily News is also known for its annual special editions celebrating the cultural and ethnic diversity of the university community.

While it is still unclear what the future holds for the Daily News, it has recently made some positive changes to its website and mobile app. In an effort to compete with a growing list of digital-first media outlets, the newspaper has updated its website and launched an app that allows users to read the latest articles in their preferred language. The app is available for iOS and Android devices. The Daily News also launched a new video series that brings viewers into the field to see how journalists work to cover a breaking story. The show features a team of Daily News journalists as they visit an emergency room, a firehouse and other sites in the city. It has been a huge success, and the station is expanding the series to additional locations in the city.
