The Daily News is a morning tabloid newspaper published in New York City, United States. It was founded in 1919 as the Illustrated Daily News by Joseph Medill Patterson, and is a subsidiary of the Tribune Company of Chicago. The paper was the first successful tabloid newspaper in the United States, and had a peak circulation of more than 200,000 by the end of the 20th century.
The New York Daily News primarily covers local news, but also features national and international stories. Its coverage is anchored by its own reporters and editors, with contributions from its various other departments. Its editorial stance is flexible, but largely centrist. It has been described as “high-minded, if populist.”
Its headquarters are located in the former Daily News Building on 450 West 33rd Street. It was designed by architects John Mead Howells and Raymond Hood, and is a national landmark. It is also home to WPIX television station and the news radio station WFAN-FM, which are both owned by the Tribune Company.
Daily News has a large readership in the New York City area, with the highest average daily circulation of any newspaper in the city. In 2015, it had a total of 2,100,000 subscribers.
In September, remnants of Hurricane Ida dropped buckets of rain on the city, flooding subways and causing many delays in travel. Ray Pereira, a married mother of two sons, started a four-day, around-the-clock emergency response to get the trains running again. In addition to her work as a firefighter, she is also a local advocate for sickle cell disease.
She launched her own charity, the Candice’s Sickle Cell Fund, two decades ago to raise money for those with the disease. Her efforts have been rewarded with two Daily News Hometown Hero awards.
Her work has earned her several honors, including a lifetime achievement award from the National Association of Black Journalists. She has been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize twice, and she is a frequent guest on local and national TV shows.
Despite her commitment to the news, she is sometimes frustrated by how she feels her stories are getting little attention. She and Roz try to improve this situation, but it can be difficult when the team is busy covering a breaking story and trying to make progress on Gloria’s case.
In her spare time, Eileen Fitzgerald tries to stay current on local issues by reading and studying the local newspaper. She also helps with the production of the paper’s magazine.
She is also a freelance journalist, writing articles for other publications as well as contributing to her own blog. Her work has been featured in several books and television documentaries.
In addition to her regular job duties, she serves on the board of directors for a nonprofit organization that provides financial and moral support to homeless women and children. She is also a member of the New York State Commission for Children and the Families. Her passion is helping others, but she also enjoys being outdoors, especially camping and hiking.
