The New York Daily News was founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson and became the first tabloid newspaper in the United States. Its circulation was initially small but grew rapidly until it reached its peak in 1947, with 2.4 million copies per day.
Despite its popularity, the Daily News faced severe economic difficulties in the early 21st century. Its owner, Mortimer Zuckerman, sold the paper to a hedge fund in 2017 for $1. However, the company continues to publish daily and is now a part of the Tronc media group.
