According to a memo sent to New York Daily News staff and obtained by BuzzFeed News, the paper’s owner, Mort Zuckerman, is considering selling it after being approached about a potential deal. “Although there were no immediate plans to consider a sale, we thought it would be prudent to explore the possibility and talk to potential buyers and/or investors,” Zuckerman wrote, adding, “I want to reassure you that my aim throughout this process will be to do the right thing for the business to ensure the Daily News and its brilliant staff have the best opportunity to achieve all our future ambitions.” Zuckerman first purchased the paper in 1993.
