SBD/Closing Bell

With The Daily’s Birthday, Early Staffers Look Back At Launch

Today we turn the page on Volume 20 of THE DAILY, as the first issue was published from a small office in Falls Church, Va., 19 years ago on this date. Yesterday in N.Y., a roundtable discussion was held with some of the early staff members, including Founder Jeffrey Pollack and Founding Editor-in-Chief Steve Bilafer. Excerpts will be featured in a special SBD/SBJ anniversary issue in December. If you have stories of your earlier memories of THE DAILY, please let us know at

David Abrutyn, Jeffrey Pollack, Chuck Todd, Steve Bilafer and Abraham Madkour – all members of the staff in September 1994 – discuss the early days of The Daily.
