The New York Daily News, formerly known as the New York Daily Mirror and the New York Daily Times, is an American tabloid newspaper published in the city of New York. It was the first successful daily tabloid in the United States, and attracted readers with sensational coverage of crime and scandal, lurid photographs, cartoons, and entertainment features. The newspaper was a dominant force in the New York media landscape, and by the middle of the 20th century had one of the largest circulations of any paper in the country.
Today, the newspaper struggles to survive in a landscape where the digital age has destroyed thousands of jobs and closed many newsrooms across the nation. In a city where the newspaper had long been a fixture, residents are now learning to make sense of their community on their own, often in ways that have never been tried before. In this deeply reported, utterly engrossing book, Andrew Conte examines what happens in a town when a local newspaper dies, and how it might be saved.
Readers will discover how a small Pennsylvania city—Mckeesport, a town that once proudly proclaimed itself “The City That Reads the News”—is responding to the massive disruptions to journalism that have eliminated thousands of jobs, closed hundreds of newsrooms, and left entire regions with little access to traditional local news. But McKeesport’s experiment offers hope that local journalism can be revived—even in the bleakest places.
Conte’s lucid and compelling narrative moves from life to death and back again, giving the reader insight into what happened and why it might matter. It’s a remarkable, must-read book that will inform and inspire anyone who cares about the state of journalism in our country.
