What Is a Daily News Reporter?

Daily News is a major American daily tabloid newspaper published in New York City. Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, it was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format and reached its peak circulation in 1947. The paper is currently owned by tronc, the publishing operations of the Tribune Company, and is headquartered at 4 New York Plaza in Lower Manhattan.

The Daily News is known for its large and prominent photographs, intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, a comics section, and a sports section. The newspaper also provides political analysis and opinion pieces, editorials and commentary, and national and international news. It was an early user of the Associated Press wirephoto service and developed a large staff of photographers.

For much of its history, the News has been a staunchly Republican publication, supporting isolationism in the early stages of World War II. Its editorial stance shifted in the 1970s and 1980s, and the News has been described as a moderate-to-liberal newspaper, often contrasted with the more right-wing New York Post.

It is the oldest college daily newspaper in the United States, and is financially and editorially independent of Yale University. The News publishes five days a week during the school year and serves the Yale community in New Haven, Connecticut. It also publishes the Friday supplement WEEKEND, the Yale Daily News magazine, and several annual special issues such as the Yale-Harvard Game Day issue, Commencement issue, and First Year Issue.

As a reporter for the Daily News, I was given the opportunity to cover a wide variety of stories and meet people from all walks of life. It’s an excellent place to work and offers many opportunities for growth. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. It feels like family. I have learned a lot about myself and have grown as an individual while working here.

The best part of my job is being able to interact with the community and help them with their questions. I have met some of the most amazing people while working for the Daily News. I have had the opportunity to go on a number of field trips while working here and have been able to see different parts of the state and country.

If I could change anything about my job at the Daily News, it would be to have a little more time in the morning to finish reading the paper before going to work. Also, I wish the Daily News website was easier to navigate and not so cluttered. But overall, I love my job and am extremely happy to be here. Thanks to my coworkers, the managers, and a great company for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I hope to continue working for the Daily News in the future! —Sarah H., Digital Marketing Specialist
