Soft news story
Hard news story
There are three important purposes of news stories: to inform - to provide the audience with information about who, what, when, where, why and how in a story to persuade - to try to get the audience to agree with the position taken by the writer or speaker to entertain - to get the audience to laugh, smile or enjoy the newscast
Let's fill in the chart together to determine the purpose of each of the following... See if you can remember an example for each one of these categories.
International / National news What was the story about? Purpose?
Local news What was the story about? Purpose?
Sports What was the story about? Purpose?
Weather / Traffic What was the story about? Purpose?
Other (Health, consumer, entertainment) W hat was the story about? Purpose?
So now we will watch a newscast twice with no sound. During the first viewing you will pay close attention to the news anchor; during the second viewing you will look for details relating to the visual images.
The News Anchor Anchor's posture? How does the anchor seem to know what to say? Anchor's facial expressions? What does the anchor do when the story is finished?
What does the anchor say to introduce the news story?
What does the anchor say to transition between parts of the news story?
What words does the anchor use to conclude the news story?
What is the message of the news story? What does the writer want you to know?
Do the visuals help you understand the facts? How?
What was the purpose of the news story? Who is the intended audience for this story? Is it especially for parents, kids, teachers or some other specific group of people? Is it trying to inform the audience about some issue, to persuade the audience to do something, or to entertain the audience? How can you tell?
Was this story a hard news story or a feature story? What criteria did you use to come to this conclusion?
