Daily News is one of South Africa’s most popular newspaper publications. It is an English language paper, with a strong and independent stance on news. It covers all the main aspects of news, including large and prominent photographs, intense city news coverage, celebrity gossip, classified ads, comics, a sports section and an opinion section. It also offers weekly updates on age-appropriate stories and instructional materials aligned to Common Core and state standards.
The newspaper is a primary source of information about current events in your community, country and the world. It is available to read online, in print or on your mobile device. Unlike journals and magazines, daily newspapers are written for the general public and do not require previous knowledge of the subject matter.
Identify what is important to your audience and write it clearly, concisely and compellingly. This means avoiding filler words, such as “and so on” and writing more about the specifics of the story. This is especially true if you are reporting an event or a milestone that affects many people in your area.
A good headline is something that grabs the reader’s attention and entices them to read the story. It needs to be unique, emotion-evoking, or intriguing.
An uncovered injustice is when the reporter finds out that basic inequalities or unfair circumstances have not been addressed by authorities. This may be a matter of law or policy that impacts the everyday life of many people. A good example would be a story about alcohol manufacturers who have a “Don’t drink and drive” campaign, but don’t change their ads to discourage drunk driving or sell cheaper drinks for children.
Another good type of headline is one that points out a major issue or controversy. This can be a breaking news story or a controversial issue that has been in the news for a while. An article about a high school prom night may be an interesting example of this.
It can also be a local interest, such as the completion of a project or initiative. A story about the first collaboration between a university, community and local residents could be an example of this.
If you are a nonprofit or small business, be creative in how you tell your story. You might be able to repurpose your media archive for a different campaign or initiative, instead of wasting money reshooting footage you already have.
For instance, if your organization is fighting to save the planet, you might repurpose video that has been featured in a 2012 campaign with Shell. This will save you time and money by not having to reshoot footage, while providing your audience with an accurate picture of what your work is doing in the world.
