The Daily News is an American newspaper founded in 1919 and published in tabloid format. It is the oldest and highest-circulated newspaper in New York City, and is one of the largest newspapers in the United States. The current Daily News is not related to the earlier Illustrated Daily News of the 19th century, or the Daily New York Herald, which was merged into the Times in 1906.
The News maintains bureaus in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, at City Hall, within One Police Plaza, and at various state and federal courthouses throughout the city. It has an extensive network of freelance reporters, and is distributed throughout the United States, including in New Jersey and Connecticut. The original headquarters building, designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, is an official city landmark and now houses Manhattan West.
Daily News delivers a fresh and bold approach to the news with large and prominent photographs, intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section and an opinion section. It is available in print, on the web and on mobile devices. It is published every weekday afternoon by Independent Media. The paper was called Natal Daily News between 1936 and 1962, and The Natal (Mercantile) Advertiser prior to that.
