Daily News brings you the latest in New York City and world news, politics, sports, celebrity gossip and entertainment. Award-winning journalists and columnists give you the inside scoop on the city’s biggest stories.
In the early 20th century, the Daily News was a top-selling newspaper and one of the nation’s largest news organizations. Although it lost circulation to sensational rival tabloids like the New York Post, it maintained a reputation for high-minded and thorough reporting. The News found abundant subject matter, including political wrongdoing such as the Teapot Dome scandal and social intrigue such as the romance between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII that led to his abdication.
The News also had a strong presence in television and radio. It established WPIX in 1948, whose call letters were inspired by the newspaper’s nickname; and bought what became WFAN-FM in 2014, which still resides in its former News building at 220 East 42nd Street (also known as “The News Building”). The News also leased space for television and radio in the Empire State Building and at One Police Plaza.
For many years, the News was based in the iconic News Building at 220 East 42nd Street, designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood. It is an official New York City landmark and served as the model for the fictional Daily Planet building in Superman films. In 1995, the newspaper moved to 450 West 33rd Street, but its old home is still called The News Building and continues to house the WPIX TV station.
