How to Write Good News

News is a way to keep up with events, people and places. It can be about anything that is new, unusual, interesting or significant. It is usually about people but may also be about non-human things such as weather, natural disasters and wars.

Creating a good news story requires that you be able to tell the facts in an engaging and interesting way. A good rule of thumb is to think about the “five Ws” – who, what, when, where and why. This formula will help you to create a story that is both factual and interesting.

A good way to practice your skills is to read newspapers and watch television and radio news. You can even use a news discovery app to see what is happening in the world. Trying to connect the different sources of news will help you to develop your ability to be more open-minded about difficult issues. Also try to read opinion pieces that are in opposition to your own beliefs – you might learn something new.

The job of the news media – magazines, newspapers and radio – is to inform and educate their readers, listeners or viewers. While they can entertain, it is the responsibility of other parts of the media to do so – drama and music on radio, crosswords and cartoons in newspapers.
