4 Basic Ingredients of A Good News Report

  • Information: tell you “who”, “what”, “when”, “where”, and “how”.

  • Background: offer helpful facts.

  • Interpretation: explain the Background.

  • Analysis: give opinion. It’s generally by an expert on the subject who explains the causes of the news and its possible consequences to you.
