National U.S. daily general-interest newspaper, the first of its kind.

Launched in 1982 by Allen Neuharth, head of the Gannett newspaper chain, it reached a circulation of one million within a year and surpassed two million in the 1990s. Initially considered gimmicky and insubstantial, it gradually developed a reputation for higher quality while increasing its circulation and advertising revenues at a time when few papers were experiencing growth. The features that originally set it apart
abundant colourful graphics, very brief stories, and a concentration on sports and celebrity
have influenced other newspapers.
