THE “LEAD”
  • EXAMPLE: It didn’t take long for swine flu to show up at Vista del Lago High School in California’s Sacramento County: About 10 a.m. on Aug. 10, two hours into the first school day, administrators got a call with news that a freshman who had stayed home that morning had a confirmed case.

THE “PYRAMID”
  • Place the most important facts at the beginning of the broadcast and additional information was mentioned in order of descending importance
  • This is done because people often don’t read an entire article, and need the important information quickly
quotes
QUOTES
  • “Quotes can be a wonderful tool for a news writer, when used appropriately,” explained longtime journalist Doug Wood-Boyle, who has worked in the field for over a quarter century.
  • Quotes provide a real-life context to the information in an article.
