    The Daily News began life in 1911 as the Van Nuys Call, morphing into the Van Nuys News after a merger with a competing newspaper called the News. In 1953, the newspaper was renamed the Van Nuys News and Valley Green Sheet, the "green sheet" being a reference for the paper''s "Green Sheet" paper that covered the first two and last two pages of Section 1.

    In 1971, the newspaper was sold to the Tribune Company by the original family owners. In 1976, to de-emphasize the Van Nuys location, the paper changed its name to the Valley News and Green Sheet, and gradually converted from the four times a week operation to a daily newspaper with paid circulation.

    In 1981, the paper changed its name to the Daily News of Los Angeles and became a daily publication. In 1985, Tribune sold the paper to Jack Kent Cooke, who spent millions of dollars building state of the art offices and expanding coverage to include the entire San Fernando Valley.

    When the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner went out of business November 2, 1989, it left the Daily News the second-biggest paper in the city behind the Los Angeles Times. Upon Cooke''s death in 1998, William Dean Singleton''s MediaNews purchased the newspaper and consolidated it with his other Southern California MediaNews holdings into the Los Angeles Newspaper Group.

    The group briefly published local editions for the Antelope Valley, Santa Clarita and Ventura County. However, to cut costs and consolidate resources, these local editions have been eliminated.

    The Daily News bears no relation to an earlier Los Angeles Daily News, a morning newspaper based in Downtown Los Angeles which ceased publication on December 18, 1954.
