Undisputed Legal | New York City Process Service

The New York Post is a conservative daily tabloid newspaper based in New York City. In addition to the NYPost.com celebrity gossip site PageSix.com, the Post also owns the other entertainment-focused site Decider.com and the Page Six gossip and news website. 

The New York Evening Post, often known as the New York Post, has been around since the 1800s, founded by Alexander Hamilton. However, the most renowned editor of the New York Evening Post was William Cullen Bryant. Following Bryant, in the mid-20th Century, Dorothy Schiff controlled the publication and was responsible for its popular tabloid format.  This attracted Rupert Murdoch’s attention, who purchased the New York Post for thirty million dollars in 1976. The Post has been owned by News Corp. ever since 1993.  

The New York Post remains a major provider of entertainment news, most often known for its tabloid war with competitor newspaper, the Daily News.

[2.0] HOW TO SERVE PROCESS ON THE NEW YORK POST.

Most commonly, the New York Post does not specifically retain a registered agent. Consequently, the Secretary of State often functions as the New York Post’s agent for New York City Process Service. In order to serve New York City Process Service on the Secretary of State as the agent of a domestic or foreign corporation, one must deliver the copies of the process and the statutory fee to the Secretary of State’s office in Albany, or to any person authorized by the Secretary of State to receive such service. The fee for service is also considered to be a taxable disbursement.

The Secretary of State is instructed to transmit one of these certified copies of the corporation’s incorporation papers via first-class mail, return receipt requested, to the NYP Holdings’  last known post office address as recorded in the state’s corporate records. In the case of a domestic corporation like the New York post, the Secretary of State must mail the copy to the corporation’s directors, as shown in the company’s certificate of incorporation. If the corporation does not have an address on file with the Department of State, the Secretary of State must mail the copy to any director of the New York Post (most commonly to NYP Holdings Inc.)
