How to Write a Good News Article

News is information about current events that affect people. News is often reported in radio, television and newspapers and is also transmitted by the Internet. People have been transporting and sharing news since ancient times. News can be about government, politics, education, religion and the economy as well as social and cultural issues.

When writing a news article, you should know who your audience is and what kind of information they want to read. Often, the target demographic is based on location. For example, if you are writing a story about zoning laws in Kansas City then your audience will be primarily from the city itself.

A good news article will start with a snappy headline that grabs the reader’s attention. It will then go on to include a “nut graph” that answers the questions who, what, where, when and why. This will place the new developments in context so that readers understand why they are important.

News articles should be free of bias and written in third person. However, it is ok to use first or second person if the topic warrants it, as long as you don’t jar the reader with the switch in person. When writing a news story, it is important to double check all facts and figures to ensure that they are correct. It is also a good idea to let someone else take a look at the article before it is published so that they can spot any errors.
