In its 20th-century heyday, The Daily News was a brawny metro tabloid that thrived when it dug into crime and corruption. It was the paper that counted Clark Kent and Lois Lane among its staffers and won Pulitzer Prizes for commentary, writing and international reporting. Its original headquarters at 450 West 33rd Street straddled the railroad tracks that led to Pennsylvania Station and was immortalized in the 1994 movie “The Paper.” In its current-affairs pages, it has reported on sexual harassment by city officials and the alleged involvement of Mayor de Blasio’s family members with drug traffickers.
In addition to the main paper, The Daily News publishes a Friday supplement known as WEEKEND, the Yale Daily News magazine and several special issues each year celebrating the university’s Indigenous, Black, Asian Pacific Islander and Latinx communities in collaboration with those communities and affiliated student groups. The newspaper also offers a series of lectures, seminars and workshops for students interested in journalism.
As the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper, The Daily News is financially and editorially independent from Yale and serves the community of New Haven and Yale University. Its staff, which includes undergraduate and graduate students, is responsible for all of the paper’s content, including news, sports, arts and entertainment, opinion and community coverage. It also produces a weekly satirical insert called SPORTS and a variety of special issues throughout the academic year, such as a Yale-Harvard Game Day issue and the Commencement issue.
The Daily News is owned by Tribune Publishing, which also owns The Chicago Tribune and The Orlando Sentinel. The company’s president, Robert York, said in a call with staffers Wednesday that he hoped to find another home for the paper. But the company’s financial troubles have made that difficult. In recent years, its print edition has struggled with declining readership and a shift to online news. It has also closed its newsrooms in Allentown, Pa., and in Orlando, Fla., in an effort to cut costs.
