A Message From Our Owner
You wake up in the morning and your phone chimes an alert: Newsday has a fresh video available on a cool new bistro just minutes from your home. Another tap on your screen, and you’re watching a live update on damage from last night’s wild weather, along with a steady stream of Newsday’s renowned, in-depth reporting on the issues that matter most to Long Islanders.
You decide to check for some things to do with the kids this weekend and you’re blown away by all the choices. A little while later your phone alerts you that one of your favorite authors will be appearing next week in Newsday’s posh new on-site theatre. Next, that text you signed up for on Long Island’s music scene shows up in your e-mail. Turns out a band that you LOVE is coming to town—and sure enough, as a Newsday subscriber, you’re entitled to a discount!
You reflect that it’s not the first time your inexpensive Newsday subscription has saved you a bundle on everything from tickets to travel to fantastic meals.
Newsday has always served as the voice of Long Island with its tough, impartial reporting and its entertaining coverage of the personalities and places that make our Island unique. But Newsday is not your parents’ paper anymore.
Newsday is transforming itself from a traditional newspaper into a cutting-edge multi-media content generation machine. The idea is to deliver stream of engaging stories on subjects we know you’re personally interested in and passionate about.
The content will come to you on your smartphone, your tablet, your desktop computer and your TV in multiple forms, including podcasts and broadcast quality video.
Users will be able to sign up for media-rich e-mail newsletters on a wide range of popular subjects, including food and restaurants, music, health, fitness, business and careers, local sports, and things to do. You could also choose to receive an alert when a fresh piece is published on a favorite subject—such as a story about a quirky ice cream shop, new jobs at an emerging tech company, or the latest on where the striped bass are biting.
You can expect regular breaking news updates throughout the day, including reporters streaming live from the scene of developing stories.
You will no longer have to visit a dozen websites to find what you need. Newsday will be your one source to navigate life on Long Island.
Much of the expanded video and multi-media content will be produced out of a new, state-of-the-art tv studio in Newsday’s new 130-thousand-square-foot headquarters in Melville.
It’s a significant investment in the future of our company and Long Island.
Exciting Live Events
In addition to expanded multi-media content, Newsday will also boost its popular lineup of live events. Food and wine tastings, conversations with authors, sports stars and thought leaders, health and travel expos, movie nights, car shows, even a series of concerts with rock, jazz, pop and classical performers. Some of the events will take place in a comfortable new multi-media theatre at Newsday’s new offices. Most will be heavily discounted for subscribers.
Newsday subscribers will also enjoy numerous discounts on restaurants, services and merchandise.
It all adds up to a powerful package that informs you, saves you money, and helps you get even more from life on this beautiful Island we all share.
Dependable Local Coverage
The new Newsday experience builds on a tradition of journalistic excellence that is not going away. Newsday will retain and enhance its award winning investigative, feature and documentary units, as well as its cadre of experienced and locally knowledgeable beat reporters.
The newspaper you grew up reading will remain your trusted eye on Long Island. We are doubling down as a watchdog that protects you with deep investigations into government corruption and waste, environmental contamination and potential dangers to Long Island families and children
Newsday understands that truth is power — and that power belongs in your hands. We will continue to be unrelenting in our local coverage.
New Value to Advertisers and Businesses
And businesses will find plenty of opportunities in Newsday’s exciting transformation.
“As Newsday transitions into the digital age, we are proud to help grow Long Island. Newsday will continue to be a hub for local businesses and consumers, for users to discover and for businesses to be discovered.
Long Island is a great place to live. We have our great shopping and boutiques, outlets, and malls with quality restaurants. We have world-class healthcare and exciting sporting events. Newsday will use leading-edge technology to match user interests and opportunities to connect with local events and businesses.
Keeping What Makes Newsday Different
New York City, the center of global media, often focuses more attention on Manhattan and the world than on the concerns of almost three million residents of Nassau and Suffolk counties. Newsday will continue to offer incisive coverage of world events, but with a critical eye to how they affect us at home.
Our 19 Pulitzer Prizes didn’t happen by accident. No news organization covers Long Island like Newsday. And no other media can provide modern, all-purpose digital access with the soul of a beat reporter.
Of course, not everything that happens in Nassau County affects Suffolk County, or the East End, and vice versa. Now, with a multimedia, digital format, you will be able to precisely focus on the news and deep content most relevant to you.”
One thing will never change — our core values of journalistic excellence, integrity and commitment to improving the quality of life on Long Island.
State-Of-The-Art TV Studio
Our new 130,000-square-foot facility represents Newsday’s investment into Long Island’s future and will include a television studio.

Examples of Newsday’s investigative journalism
A seven-month Newsday investigation into the head safety of high school football which found that nearly 10 percent of helmets used on Long Island rated poorly at reducing the risk of concussion by researchers. The Newsday report prompted immediate change, with three school immediately replacing their entire helmet inventories and dozens of other schools removing the low rated helmets from circulation.
The Cost of Corruption
After two years of reporting on alleged corruption in the town of Oyster Bay and Nassau County involving Hicksville restaurateur Harendrah Singh and his relationship with then-County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife Linda, federal prosecutors brought charges against the Manganos for trading vacations and a no-show job for lucrative contracts and loans. In the ensuing trial, a jury found the Manganos guilty.
