Feature stories background

Feature stories – background

  • A feature story sometimes called “fluff” and is often designed to fill up the paper when it is a soft news day.

  • You can sometimes find them “below the fold” on the front page.

  • On weekends, especially Sundays, a feature story may appear above the fold because most Sunday papers have a more relaxed, more human feel to them.
