Daily news is a periodical publication in which events of the day are described. It may contain articles, reports, photographs or cartoons and serves to inform its readers of events in the world around them. The newspaper is often based on factual information and is generally a neutral source of news. Occasionally, it has editorial opinions and political leanings. It can also be used to highlight important events or issues. Daily newspapers are a great way to stay up to date on the latest news.
The Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college daily newspaper and serves the Yale and New Haven communities in Connecticut. It is financially and editorially independent and publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year. It produces a weekly Friday supplement known as WEEKEND and several special issues each year such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, Commencement Issue, First Year Issue and an Indigenous, Black, AAPI and Latinx Community Issue produced in collaboration with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups.
Founded in 1878, the News has been the voice of students at Yale since its inception. Today, the News reaches an audience of more than 100,000 unique visitors to its website and is distributed at over 150 locations throughout New Haven. The News is a member of the American Press Association and its international affiliate, the European Press Union. The News is also a founding member of the New England Newspaper and Cable Consortium and a charter partner of the New York Times Media Alliance.
For decades the Daily News has been a staunchly Republican paper in line with its sister publication, the Chicago Tribune, and supported isolationism during World War II. From the 1940s to the 1960s it espoused conservative populism, while in the 1980s and beyond it began shifting its political position toward the left.
From 1929 to 1995 the News was headquartered in 220 East 42nd Street near Second Avenue, an official city and national landmark building designed by John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. The original News building was later replaced by a larger structure at 450 West 33rd Street (also known as Manhattan West), which now houses the News’s world headquarters, and its former television subsidiary, WPIX-TV.
