News is the latest information about what is happening in the world.
It may come from a newspaper, radio, television or from an Internet source. It can be brief or long, detailed or a mix of both, and it can come from sources in the public or private sector.
How to Write a News Story
If you are writing a news article, follow this template: Start with the main facts and state your opinion as well. Then, include any additional information that will help your reader learn more.
When you are done, add quotations from your sources as needed, or at the end of your article, if you have used quotes earlier in the piece. This will make your article more informative and help to keep the reader’s attention.
You should also use a variety of language, so that your readers have different experiences with your article. In this way, you will be able to communicate your ideas to the widest possible audience.
