Publishers And Printers
The Daily News is an award-winning media company that produces a daily newspaper (Tuesday through Saturday) covering news and events in Genesee, Wyoming and Orleans counties. The staff also produces niche publications devoted to local business and agriculture, along with multiple annual special sections. The staff has been recognized with multiple awards for writing, photography and advertising.
The history of The Daily News dates back to 1878, when Malcolm D. Mix, brother Samuel Mix and W.H. Brandish (the paper’s first editor) founded the newspaper — the first successful daily paper to publish in the city, which had known other attempts and numerous weeklies dating back to 1819.
The first edition of The Daily News was published on June 25, 1878 as The Daily Morning News. Not too long after, the paper was changed to an afternoon publication and became The Daily News. The first edition was four pages long and cost 1 cent. The paper would be called tabloid size by today’s standards, with four columns instead of its present-day six.
