The Daily News has a long history. In 1995, it moved from one of its former headquarters on East 42nd Street to another on West 33rd Street. During the move, legendary boxing writer Jimmy Cannon and Dick Young sat on the bench, as did dozens of Daily News mainstays. In that same year, it was purchased by Tronc.
About the paper
The Daily News is a major newspaper in the United States. It is headquartered in Jersey City, NJ. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson. The publication was one of the first in the country to publish in a tabloid format, and reached its peak circulation in 1947 of 2.4 million copies per day.
The Daily News is an American newspaper with an editorial stance described as ‘high-minded, flexibly centrist’ by the New York Times. In its early years, the Daily News was a conservative newspaper that endorsed isolationism and conservative populism. In the 1940s and early 1970s, however, the Daily News began shifting toward the left, and now reflects a more liberal slant.
The Pulitzer Prize for daily news is one of the most prestigious awards in journalism, and it is given to journalists for a wide range of achievements. Some awards are given to venerable institutions such as the New York Times, while others go to smaller, local publications. These publications may not receive national recognition, but their work deserves recognition. For example, Jeffery Gerritt, the editor of the Palestine Herald-Press in Texas, recently won a prize for editorial writing. His columns revealed the conditions of pre-trial inmates, including their lack of access to adequate health care.
Sale to Tronc in 2017
After a year of aggressive deal making, Gannett attempted to buy Tronc. The two companies agreed to a deal, and Gannett later raised the price several times, but the deal eventually fell apart. Investors speculate about another possible deal. Ferro has tried to acquire US Weekly and The Chicago Sun-Times in the past, but failed.
