Chapter Six Thoughts…

NEWS FEATURES:

What I learned:

  • Features are considered “soft news” rather than “hard news”
  • Features may include: case studies, application stories, research studies,  backgrounders, personality profiles, and historical pieces.

What Surprised me:

  • The book states that wen writing a personality profile that you should not write in chronological order, suggesting more people are more interesting at age 40 than age 4.
  • (pg 172)- I was surprised to see that the book suggest that you should discard a telephone number acronym in favor of numerals because it apparently makes it easier for the consumer to make a telephone call for more information

What I want to know more about:

  • Who writes the examples in our book that demonstrate each type of these leads and story types?
