– News preceded by the date and place of origin or place where it was written or filed: Tokyo, Jan. 20 (AP) 2. Chronology or sequence a. Advance or anticipated – News published before its occurrence, sometimes called dope or prognostication. The reporter foretells events expected to occur at a definite time in the future. b. Spot news – News that is gathered and reporter on the spot. It deals with unscheduled information demanding immediate publication. The reporter himself is an eyewitness to the event that took place. c. Coverage news – News written from a given beat. Both spot news and coverage news are good examples of first-hand reporting. d. Follow-up news – A sequel to a previous story. Having a new lead of its own, it is a second, third or subsequent chapter of a serial. 3. Structure a. Straight News – News that consists of facts given straight without embellishment. Its main aim is to inform. It uses the summary lead and is written using the inverted pyramid structure. b. News-feature (Featurized news distinguished from a feature article) – It is also based on facts, but it entertains more than it informs. It uses the suspended interest structure like the narrative; thus, it cannot meet the cut-off test. In writing a news-feature, the writer may give his impression, may describe and narrate, but without resorting to biased opinion; i.e., without editorializing. The reporter’s by-line usually appears with his story. Single-feature or one-incident story – The story deals with an isolated event. A single fact is featured in the lead and is explained further in the succeeding paragraphs. The story breaks logically at every paragraph; thus enabling the reporter to cut or lengthen it as space dictates. Several-feature, multiple-angled, or composite story – Several facts are included in the lead in their order of importance. These facts are elaborated one after the other in the body. The several-feature story aims to draw together two or more divergent aspects of related news items separately; the writer writes them in one big story. 4. Treatment a. Fact story – This is a plain exposition setting forth a single situation or a series of closely related facts that inform. It is written in the inverted pyramid design. name

b. Action story – A narrative of actions involving not mere simple facts but also of dramatic events, description of persons and events, perhaps testimony of witnesses, as well as explanatory data. Sports games, competitions, accidents, and war reports are examples of action stories. c. Speech report – A news story usually written from a public address, talks, and speeches. d. Quote story – Speeches, statements, and letters, and to some extent, interviews when reported, are regarded as quote stories. All are based on recorded information, either written or spoken, and transcribed by the reporter in the form of news.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
