The Daily News has been taken off the market after a six-month search for a buyer ended in no deal, owner Mortimer Zuckerman said Thursday.
In February, the 78-year-old Mr. Zuckerman announced he would explore a possible sale of the paper he has owned for more than two decades after being approached by a potential buyer.
