How to Write a News Article


News covers the events and current issues that affect people, communities, countries and the world. It can also provide entertainment and leisure through feature stories and news in film, television, radio and newspapers.

When writing a news article it is important to remember the 5 W’s: Who, What, Where, Why and How. Asking yourself these questions will help you decide what information to include in your story and how to present it. It is also important to know your audience. This will determine the tone and voice of your piece. It will also help you to determine how much drama or factual information to use.

It is also important to note that most events that make the news are things that are not routine, everyday occurrences. For example, a man walking to work or eating breakfast does not normally make the news, but if something is unusual, it could become the main story of the day.

The news is often about things that have a major effect on many people, such as a natural disaster, war, political crisis or economic turmoil. It is these kinds of stories that draw large audiences on TV, radio and in the newspaper. It is also important that the news is relevant. For example, national television and radio news programs focus on events that are happening or that have just happened in the United States. However, national and international newspapers cover news that is relevant to readers worldwide.
