It is the fourth most widely circulated in US and was founded by Joseph Medill Patterson in 1919.It was the first U.S. daily printed in tabloid format. The Daily News didn't have immediate successful story, and in the end of August 1919, the paper's circulation had dropped to 26,625. Still, New York's mostly subway commuters found the tabloid format easier to use, and readership rapidly grew. By the time of the paper's anniversary in June 1920, newspaper circulation was close to 100,000 and by 1925, over a million. Circulation was on its heights in 1947, at 2.4 million daily and 4.7 million on Sunday. A 150 million-dollar funding was provided in newspaper printing presses when the paper went to full color. As of 2011, the printing press facility is being facilitated with a $105 million investment of three new presses, made possible in State of New Jersey provisioning the company a $42.7 million Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit. Former editor of News of the World and New York Post, Colin Myler was appointed editor-in-chief of the Daily News in January 2012. The News used the slogan "New York's Picture Newspaper" in the period of 1920 to 1991, for its focus on photographs, and a camera has been included as a part of the logo of the newspaper from day one.
