Make The News

Reading Notes #4 – COMM 4333

Making the news can be a challenge in different ways because the news is very fast paced and intricate.

There are many times a journalist will need to question the timeliness on the story, prominence and even proximity because these are all factors in its success.

Other factors on making news:

  • Significance
  • Unusualness
  • Human Interest
  • Conflict
  • Newness

There will be times when you have to look for a new angle inside a story and then others when you have to create the news from a source. News can be created because of special events in the community, stunts, rallies etc.

Always important to take the news and find a new way to present it to the general public while keeping the value of the original event.
