During the late nineteenth century, Chicago Daily News was the most widely read newspaper in the city. By the end of the 1920s, the paper had a circulation of over 430,000. It was one of the top 15 publishing companies in the country. When the war ended in 1945, the paper’s annual revenues climbed to more than $15 million.
In the 1940s and 1950s, the Daily News promoted a conservative populist message. The paper’s editorial stance was described by the New York Times as “high-minded, moderate, and populist.” The paper was known for its strong local news coverage. In addition to its news coverage, the Daily News published classified ads, large photographs, and cartoons. It also included an opinion section and an extensive sports section. The Daily News was one of the first newspapers to use the Associated Press wirephoto service. In fact, it was the first newspaper to do so.
In the 1930s, the Daily News developed a large staff of photographers. The paper became known for its sensational coverage of crime. In the early years of World War II, the paper supported isolationism. In the mid-1970s, the Daily News began shifting. It no longer held the city’s attention with a single headline. In fact, the paper’s circulation continued to decrease.
After buying the New York Daily News out of bankruptcy in 1993, Mortimer B. Zuckerman decided to sell the newspaper to Tronc, a Chicago-based media company. Tronc agreed to pay $1 for the Daily News. The paper’s new owners, Tribune Publishing, slashed the newsroom in half and replaced Jim Rich, the paper’s top editor, with media executive John York. Despite the changes, The Daily News still has its signature four-faced clock in its newsroom.
