News is information about current events. News comes in many forms including newspapers, magazines, radio, television and online. Each medium presents news in a different way and this gives audiences a slightly different perspective on what is happening.
The purpose of News is to inform and educate people about the world around them. The information in the news is used to help them make decisions about their lives, work and family. The news also gives them a sense of what is important in society and why. The news is important to most people because it helps them stay connected to the world around them.
To write a news article it is important to know who you are writing for. Asking yourself questions like: What is the demographic of your audience, what do they want to read about, and why are they reading your article will help guide you in what to include in your story. It is important to start with the most important details in your article and place them above the fold (the crease in the middle of the paper). This will ensure that your reader sees the most important information first.
News is often dramatic. It is more likely to be newsworthy if it involves an unexpected event or a conflict between good and bad. For example a robbery at a convenience store will be more interesting to readers than a burglary at an office building because it will have clear good and bad characters in the situation.
