The Daily News was once the country’s largest circulated newspaper. It was also the most popular, but its circulation has been declining. It is no longer able to keep the attention of the city with a single headline. In recent years, it has struggled to compete with other top-selling newspapers, like the New York Post. As a result, the paper has been forced to cut its staff in half.
In addition to publishing its newspaper, the Daily News also maintains local bureaus in the Bronx and Brooklyn. It also publishes magazines and other articles. The newspaper also operates a radio station in Manhattan. Its radio station is now owned by CBS Radio.
