News is information that relates to current affairs/events. It is generally reported in newspapers, radio and TV but can also be published online. It is written for a general audience but can also be tailored towards specific groups/demographics.
News articles need to be informative and engaging but not dull or boring. The information provided should be accurate and up to date. The article should also be clearly labelled and presented. This will help readers to understand the content of the article and decide if they want to read further. A good title will catch the reader’s attention and be informative. This will usually be a simple sentence or short paragraph that summarizes the main details of the news story. It should include the date and time of the event/addition, who was involved and what happened. It should also be accompanied by a byline (the author’s name).
Choosing the right topic for a News article can be difficult. The most important thing is to ensure that the subject of the article is relevant and will be of interest to your target audience. This will help to keep readers interested and hopefully ensure that they share the article with their friends/family.
The strength of a news story can be judged by how many of the following criteria it meets: newness, unusualness, interestingness, significance and impact. In addition, a story with a human dimension will always be more interesting and significant than one without.
