What makes a story newsworthy?

A story is newsworthy when it has the following qualities:

It is unusual, new, interesting, significant and about people. It also has to be factual.

What makes a news story unusual is something that is happening in the world or in a local area, and it should be something that people have not heard about before. It may also be a story that has a positive or negative impact on the society it is about.

Some of the most common types of news are controversies, celebrity, entertainment and human interest.

Controversy: Stories about controversies are of interest to people because they involve conflict, arguments, fights and tension. They are also good because they can cause people to think about the issue.

Prominence: Stories about prominent men and women are of interest to people because they can affect their lives, careers and money. It is especially newsworthy if they fall out of favour, lose their money or are involved in scandal.

Currency: News is about what is happening now, so stories that have a currency are of interest to people.

Oddity: Stories about things that are unusual or unexpected are of interest to people because they can be shocking. They can also make people wonder what has happened to them or what will happen in the future.

Emotion: Stories about stories that are emotional or have a strong feeling of emotion are of interest to people because they can help them feel empathy for others.

The news is important to the society because it can help people understand their rights, their duties and their responsibilities. It can also help them to avoid problems and to live in a better way.

It can be a source of education and help people to learn about their environment, their country, their history and the government. It can also help them to find out about jobs, careers and educational opportunities.

Usefulness: Most newspapers have columns that tell people about weather forecasts, train timings and other useful information.

Educational: Most newspapers have columns that tell people about educational and job opportunities.

Health: Most societies are concerned about their health, so stories about traditional remedies, medical research, diseases, hospitals and clinics, drugs, diet and exercise are of interest to them.

Sex: Most societies are interested in sex, even if they don’t talk about it openly.

Magnitude: Most news stories are based on events that have large numbers of people involved, or they are seen to have an impact on people’s lives.

It can be difficult to know how to write a news story that is interesting and accurate at the same time. It’s important to remember that most people are very busy and do not have time to read long articles, so you should keep your story concise and easy to follow. You should also check with an editor for advice before submitting your story to be published.
