What Makes a Story Newsworthy?

What makes thumb-stopping content for you?

Here’s our take:

  • Timeliness: Newer is better. Stories grow old in a hurry.
  • Proximity: People are more interested in stuff that’s happening close to them than news happening far away
  • Impact: Does it matter? Put your story through the “so what” test. How will the information affect our lives? 
  • Novelty: Is it an unusual story? 
  • Conflict: Good news is no news.
  • Human Interest: People are interested in other people.
  • Prominence: Can we tie the story to someone famous or prominent?
