Taiwan Daily (Chinese: 台灣日報; pinyin: Táiwān Rìbào) was a daily newspaper based in Taiwan that began circulation on October 25, 1964 and ended on June 6, 2006.

Features[edit]

The Taiwan Daily was usually published as broadsheet in full color, excepting classified ads and extended articles. It was divided into five sections, General News, United States and Community, Leisure and Living, Sports, and Advertisements. As is characteristic of Taiwan Paparazzi, articles usually featured comprehensive biographies covering celebrities' height and weight, as well as provocative pictures of strippers and celebrity relations.

History[edit]

Taiwan Daily was founded on October 25, 1964, as Oriental Daily (東方日報), in Keelung. In 1976 the paper was renamed Taiwan Daily, amongst semantic criticism. By that time, the Daily had reached 300,000 copies in circulation, and was Taiwan's largest newspaper. It ceased publication late 2006.
