Founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919, The Daily News was one of the first tabloids in the United States. It was known for its sensational coverage of news, crime, and other scandals, as well as lurid photographs and cartoons. It was a major player in the newspaper industry until the 1970s, when it was outpaced by the New York Post and other competitors.
For many years, the Daily News reflected conservative populism; it was considered a staunch Republican publication during World War II and into the 1960s. However, it began to shift its stance in the 1970s. In the 1990s, it embraced a moderately liberal viewpoint and became known for its strong editorial opinion section.
Its former headquarters at 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue is a national landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It is a popular destination for tourists and was the model for the Daily Planet building in the first two Superman films.
In addition to its daily news, the Daily News publishes a Sunday edition and produces television and radio broadcasts. The paper’s television station, WPIX (Channel 11), was established in 1948 and is now owned by the Tribune Company. The radio station, WFAN-FM, is owned by Emmis Communications.
