“We Have News for You” (Daily News headline after 1963 newspaper strike)

The 1962–63 New York City newspaper strike ran 114 days, from December 8, 1962, until March 31, 1963. The Daily News (New York, NY) ran a memorable front page headline after the end of the strike on April 1, 1963:

“WELL, HELLO THERE!
WE HAVE NEWS
FOR YOU”


Wikipedia: 1962-63 New York City newspaper strike
The 1962–63 New York City Newspaper Strike ran from December 8, 1962, until March 31, 1963, lasting for a total of 114 days. Besides low wages, the unions were resisting automation of the printing presses.
(...)
As publication resumed, the first headline in the Daily News was “We Have News for You”.
(...)
After the strike was ended, both the Times and Herald Tribune doubled their price to 10 cents, one of the factors that had cut readership. As of September 30, 1963, circulation of six daily New York papers was down 11.9% on weekdays and 8.3% on Sundays based on reports from the Audit Bureau of Circulations. The John F. Kennedy assassination in November 1963 helped bring readers back to newspapers.

The New York Daily Mirror, owned by the Hearst Corporation, shut down on October 15, 1963, and sold its name and goodwill to the Daily News. The Mirror’s management blamed the closure on the effects of the strike aggravating existing problems at the paper.
