How to Write Newsworthy Content
News is a term used to describe a collection of information about important events. It can be news about war, politics, education, health, the environment and other topics.
In order to write a good news article, you need to know what your audience is interested in and how they will respond. This will help you choose your topic, write in a readable style and select your sources wisely.
Facts that make up a news story are called “news values.” The value of a news value can be judged on various criteria, such as its usefulness and credibility. Objectivity and fairness are two other qualities of news values.
These factors determine how much and how often a news value is given prominence in a particular news story, as well as the way it is treated (Olmstead et al. 2011, Galtung and Ruge 2009, Phillips 2012).
The importance of a news value can also change over time. This is because journalists are constantly trying to refine their judgment guidelines. This process is often driven by pressures from advertisers to produce click-worthy and socially engaging content.
There is no one right way to write a news story. Your best bet is to start with a strong lead statement, which summarizes your topic and provides essential facts and details. This will be the foundation for your entire news article. Next, gather the most important points from your research and place them in pyramid “buckets” based on their importance.
