The Daily News-Digest was a tabloid published mornings, Monday through Friday. The first issue appeared April 9, 1952. It was short lived, however. “Altogether, the International Typographical Union since 1951 has launched nine new dailies in cities where members of the union have been on strike against existing papers,” reported the fall 1954 Journalism Quarterly. [The ITU sponsored competing newspapers in Beckley, Charleston, and Huntington.]
“One, the national Labor’s Daily, is not included here because of its specialized field. Another, the Beckley, W. Va. News-Digest, has suspended.”
