It has won 11 Pulitzer Prizes
PULITZER PRIZES ARE AWARDED EVERY SPRING FOR JOURNALISM’S BEST WORKS. The Pulitzer Prizes are the most prestigious journalism awards in the world. Established in the will of newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer, they recognize the greatest achievements in journalism, music, literature and drama.

Among the daily papers in the United States, The Daily News has been around the longest. It is one of the nation’s largest sellers.
The paper was once a tabloid-sized newspaper with four columns, instead of the six columns of today. It espoused a conservative populist agenda during the 1940s and ’50s. It was also one of the first successful daily papers in the city.
Today, the Daily News is part of Johnson Newspaper Corporation. It is a family-owned multi-media company that produces niche publications for local businesses. The company also owns broadcasting operations. The Daily News has also won numerous awards for its advertising.
It is a family-owned multimedia company with local news coverage
Having a monopoly on local news coverage is no small feat, but that doesn’t mean that you have to give up on the sexy stuff. The Daily News is a family owned multimedia company that covers the North Country, Hudson Valley and the state of New York in spades. Its flagship product is the Daily News, which covers the area from Batavia to the Canadian border. As a result, the organization boasts a staff of award winning journalists and photojournalists.
It is closing its newsroom
Earlier this week, the parent company of the New York Daily News announced that it will close its newsroom in Lower Manhattan. This is a devastating blow for many Daily News veterans.
The Daily News, which was once America’s largest circulation newspaper, has been in financial trouble for decades. It has slashed its staff in recent years and has lost its ad revenue. It was purchased by Tribune Publishing in 2017 for $1.
