The Yale Daily News

Daily news is a broad term that describes any news published on a regular basis. The news may focus on a wide range of subjects, such as politics, crime, sports, and more. Many daily newspapers feature local news as well as national and international stories. The term “daily news” is also used to refer to online news sources. The internet has transformed the way in which people get their daily news, and many of today’s news outlets have websites that are updated regularly.

Founded in 1919, the New York Daily News was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States. The paper attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, cartoons, and entertainment features. The Daily News reached its peak circulation in 1947. By the 21st century, the newspaper was struggling to keep up with its muscular hometown tabloid rival, the News Corp-owned New York Post. It also struggled with declining print circulation and shifting ad revenue. In 2017 it was announced that the Daily News would be sold to Tronc, a company that emerged from the former publisher of the New York Tribune. Tronc agreed to purchase the Daily News for $1 and assume its operational and pension liabilities.

The Yale Daily News Historical Archive consists of digitized copies of printed issues of the newspaper from its founding on January 28, 1878 to the present. The Archive is accessible to the public and is hosted by the Yale University Library. The archive is maintained by a generous gift from an anonymous Yale alumnus. The Library’s staff are grateful for their support.

For more than a century, the Yale Daily News has been the primary source of information and debate at the University. The News is the oldest college daily in the United States and has a distinguished history of alumni in journalism, business, government, and public life. The paper has been editorially independent since its founding. The News publishes Monday through Friday during the academic year. Its schedule includes the flagship YDN and special issues such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day Issue and Commencement Issue. The News also publishes cultural and special issues in collaboration with Yale’s various ethnic and minority centers.
