How to Write Newsworthy Content

News is a type of informational story that covers important events and issues in the world. People read and share news stories to get current information, stay informed, and know what is happening in their community. News is also a way for businesses to spread the word about their products or services.

A well written news article should be factual and engaging. The writer is tasked with taking dry facts and creating a story that makes them interesting to read. This is a skill that many journalists possess and it is why so many people trust the content they create.

Creating news articles can be challenging. There is a fine line between making the content interesting and informative and crossing over to the point of being clickbait. This is why it is so important to research and gather the information needed to create a news story before writing. It is also critical to proofread before submitting any type of article for publication, especially a news piece. It is always a good idea to have another member of your department look over the article to ensure all the facts are accurate and the language used is appropriate for the publication.

In some types of journalism, it is inappropriate for the writer to add their personal opinions into the story. A better option is to let the subjects of the story do the talking. For example, if you are writing about a company that recently replaced its CEO, interview the new CEO and ask them for a quote to include in your story. It is also a good idea to use third person pronouns like ‘he,”she’ or ‘it’ rather than first person pronouns like ‘I’ when quoting someone in a news article.

Depending on the subject matter, some news stories may require more in-depth research than others. For example, a quick breaking news story about a fire at a house would probably only include the basic details of what happened and how it was caused. On the other hand, an in-depth news article about the fire might be more detailed and include interviews with those affected by it.

Some of the best sources for unbiased news are independent newspapers and blogs that have a specific focus, such as Los Angeles Weekly or Random Lengths here in California or ProPublica in the US. Additionally, there are many resources online that adhere to the AP guidelines for journalism and strive to be as objective as possible. This includes The Hill, The Economist and Fivethirtyeight.
