    Both daily and weekly are adjectives in these examples, describing the newspaper.

    It's not an adverb in the first one.

    "daily" can be both an adjective and an adverb.
    It is a daily newspaper. (an adjective)
    He visits his father daily. (an adverb)


    "weekly" can be both an adjective and an adverb.
    It is a weekly newspaper. (an adjective)
    He visits his father weekly. (an adverb)
