In 1973, Arthur Browne became a copy boy at the Daily News.  Now 44 years later he is the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of New York City’s home town newspaper.

In the past four decades, Browne has covered the city’s most compelling stories…as a reporter, a columnist, editorial page editor and editor, investigative editor, managing editor, and now editor-in-chief and publisher.

Politico calls Browne the “tortured heart and soul” of the newspaper.

In 2007, he won a Pulitzer Prize for editorials that exposed the devastating health problems resulting from the 9/11 attack on The World Trade Center.

His books, I Koch, on the late New York City mayor Edward I. Koch and One Righteous Man: Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York, are must reads for anyone interested in the Big Apple’s life and history.
