The number for the Daily News newsroom is (818) 713-3636. But when you call it, you don't reach anyone. It rings five or six times and then you get this automated message."You have been forwarded to a voicemail system. However, the person at 3-6-3-6 does not subscribe to this service. A valid attendant has not been specified. Your session can not be continuous at this time. Please try again later. Goodbye."
I tried several times and each time I got this message.
