Yale Daily News

Daily news is a term used for newspapers, which usually report on current events, but may also include local news and celebrity gossip. The most famous example of a daily newspaper is the New York Times, but many other national and international newspapers have a daily edition.

The Yale Daily News is a student newspaper that serves the campus community of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, United States. It is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and has been financially and editorially independent since its founding on January 28, 1878. In addition to the daily newspaper, it publishes a Friday supplement known as WEEKEND, the Yale Daily News Magazine and several special issues each year celebrating Yale’s Indigenous, Black, AAPI and Latinx communities in partnership with their affiliated student groups.

In addition to its main New York City bureau, the Daily News has offices in Washington, D.C., as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago and London. It is available in electronic format online through its website and is distributed throughout the world. The newspaper has a reputation for investigative reporting and often covers controversial topics, including police misconduct.

Its newspaper columns and news stories are renowned for their vivid language and sensational content. In the 1920s, it focused on crime and scandal, lurid photographs, and celebrity gossip and featured many of the era’s most prominent personalities in its pages. It became an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service in the 1930s and developed its own staff of photographers.

The News is also known for its social commentary and political stances, which it describes as “flexibly centrist” with a “high-minded, if populist legacy.” During the Cold War, the newspaper endorsed isolationism and was among the first to call for a nuclear test ban. It shifted its stance after the Cold War and adopted a more liberal platform in the 1990s.

The newspaper’s flagship building, located at 220 East 42nd Street in Manhattan, is an architectural landmark designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. In addition to the main newspaper office, it houses a radio station that once had call letters based on its nickname (WPIX), a television channel called New York Live, and a branch of the post office.
