Today we read chapter two in our textbook Inside Reporting. You can find the link to the online version here. The online version doesn’t have everything, but you can get a lot of the ideas from the summary online. If you’d like to check out a textbook just talk to me after class. One thing you want to make sure you know from today’s reading are the news hooks, the things that make something newsworthy. They are:

  • Impact
  • Immediacy
  • Proximity
  • Prominence
  • Novelty
  • Conflict
  • Emotions
