The New York Daily News is a tabloid newspaper published in New York City. It is the oldest continuously published newspaper in the United States and is the largest newspaper in the state of New York with a circulation of 2.3 million copies per day. The paper was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News, and in 1948 launched WPIX-TV (Channel 11 in New York) with call letters based on its nickname; it also owned what became WFAN-FM and is headquartered in the former News building at One Police Plaza.
The paper’s editorial stance is described as “flexibly centrist,” with a high-minded, populist legacy that has historically aligned it with Democratic Party politics and progressive ideas. It has long had a strong anti-Federal government tone, and its political activism is notable in the areas of civil rights, LGBT equality, women’s issues, gun control, and other social concerns. The newspaper also has a history of supporting isolationism and conservative polemics, but has in recent years moved more to the center.
Its newsroom is the second largest in the country behind The Washington Post’s, with more than 1,200 journalists, including hundreds of freelancers. The paper publishes in multiple languages, including Spanish and Korean. The newspaper is available in a number of formats, including print, online, mobile apps, and radio. The Daily News is one of the few major newspapers to maintain a dedicated video department, which produces a large amount of content each week, mostly for its online editions.
In the summer of 2018, the News hired a full-time staff to handle video production and editing for its online platforms, including its website, mobile apps, and social media channels. The video team works closely with the paper’s print and digital editors, who provide the story concepts for each piece.
Editors will look at each submission for clarity, adherence to the facts, and relevance to the Yale-New Haven community. Submissions will be evaluated on an individual basis and may not be accepted for publication. The News reserves the right to edit all submissions, and its decision to accept a column is final.
All columns should be between 500 and 600 words in length and include a headline, photo credits, and byline. While anyone is welcome to submit a guest column, the News prefers submissions that address the community of Yale-New Haven and make a strong, defensible argument.
