Chapter Four: The Structure of a News Story
This chapter covers the structure of a news story. All news stories are organized in much the same way. Once you learn how news stories are organized, they will be much easier to write.
The first paragraph or section is called the LEAD.
The rest of the story is called the BODY, which generally backs up the LEAD.
And, finally, as with any good story, it concludes with a strong ENDING.
