The Yale Daily News
Founded on January 28, 1878, the Yale Daily News is the nation’s oldest college newspaper. It is financially and editorially independent from the university, publishing Monday through Friday during the academic year. The News also publishes a Friday supplement known as WKND and several special issues each year, including the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue, Commencement Issue and First Year Issue. The News works closely with Yale’s cultural centers and affiliated student groups to produce issues that celebrate the diversity of the Yale community. The News is part of the ITN Video Archive, which contains iconic news footage from the British broadcaster’s first broadcasts in 1955 to present day.
A tabloid-sized American newspaper published six days a week, except for Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays. During its peak in the 1920s, the New York Daily News was one of the largest-circulation newspapers in the world. Often competing with its sensational rival, the New York Post, it focused on political wrongdoing, such as the Teapot Dome Scandal, and social intrigue, such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII, which led to the latter’s abdication.
The News is owned by Tribune Publishing, which also owns the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times. In the wake of being taken over by cost-slashing hedge fund Alden Global Capital last year, the parent company accelerated layoffs and other cost-cutting measures. Earlier this month, Tribune told employees at the Daily News that its 4 New York Plaza office in Lower Manhattan would close permanently. The paper is expected to move to a downtown location. The News is not the only daily newspaper to close its offices in recent months. Tribune also announced Wednesday that the newsrooms of The Morning Call in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and the Orlando Sentinel will shut down.

The term Daily News is also used to refer to any newspaper published at least five days a week, in accordance with the Press and Registration of Books Act 1867. It is not to be confused with the Illustrated Daily News, a pioneering US tabloid printed in the late 19th century, which was discontinued in 1906. The name of the current Daily News was inspired by that predecessor. It was the first newspaper to use a tabloid format. Today, it is the 11th highest-circulation newspaper in the United States. Its editorial stance is described as being flexible, centrist with a high-minded (if populist) legacy. It is a competitor of the right-wing New York Post. The Daily News has been a Pulitzer Prize winner in the past, for reporting on police abuses of eviction rules in 1992 and, more recently, for uncovering widespread corruption at the city’s schools in 2015. It is not currently one of the top 10 highest-circulation newspapers.
