Founded in 1919 by Joseph Medill Patterson as the Illustrated Daily News, the New York Daily News has gone from being the first U.S. daily newspaper to be printed in a tabloid format to being sold to Tronc in 2017. It has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service and was the first newspaper to be sold to a digital company, enabling readers to get their daily dose of news on their phone, tablet or computer.
Pulitzer Prize for Public Service
Among the fifteen journalism categories that earn a Pulitzer Prize are local reporting, national reporting, and public service. These awards are awarded to newspapers, magazines, and other media organizations that have achieved excellence in one or more of these categories.
The Pulitzer Prize for Public Service is given to news organizations that have done a good job reporting on social and political issues. This may include editorials and photographs. Those who are awarded the Pulitzer Prize are awarded $15,000 and a gold medal.
Move downtown in 2011
Several big corporations have moved to downtown Manhattan in recent years, including Mondelez International and Kraft Heinz. Some suburban based firms have also made the leap, including W.W. Grainger and the local Zoro subsidiary.
The Daily News building has been a work in progress for many years, but the move to Manhattan has finally come to fruition. This will be the first time the company has operated out of Lower Manhattan since its days at the Daily News Building on East 42nd Street in the 1990s.
Sale to Tronc in 2017
During the past year, Tronc (formerly Tribune Publishing) has made several bold moves in the media space. It has also entered into non-binding letters of intent to acquire Wrapports Holdings, LLC, and Aggrego. It’s also looking for a top editor at the L.A. Times. And its stock is up 22 percent. It’s a lot to behold.
But while the company has been making a few bold moves, it has also been a bit adrift. Four top corporate executives have left the company in the past month. And the company is also facing a significant cash shortfall. Its adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter was down 7% from the same period last year.
Digital edition replica of the print newspaper
Several newspaper publishers have introduced a digital edition replica of the print newspaper. These digital replicas offer the same editorial content as the print version, but are delivered in an electronic format. Some publishers also offer additional features.
A digital replica of the print newspaper can be delivered on a handheld device or via e-reader. It can also be delivered through the web or by email. In addition to editorial content, some digital replicas also offer features such as interactive articles and searchable articles.
