News is anything that affects people in the world. It can be a matter of interest to a specific society or region, an event that has taken place in the past or something that is expected to happen soon.
News can be about government proclamations, royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health and criminals. It can also include events that are happening in the wider world, like wars and disasters.
When people talk about news, they often refer to things that are occurring at the moment or that will happen soon. They can also mention things that are important to them personally, like their kids’ activities or sports, and events that are taking place nearby.
The most important thing about news is that it’s “timely”. It should be fresh and current — something that’s happening right now or will start soon.
It should also be interesting to the audience. It should be able to be read quickly and understood easily, and it should be a good picture of what’s going on in the world.
In addition, news should have some drama or tension. A story about a girl winning a gold medal at an Olympic Games is more interesting than a story about a businessman who gave a lot of money to a fund-raising event.
The best way to find out what makes news is to listen to a range of message sources. That includes radio, television and the Internet. You can also check out newspapers and magazines.
