Six Criteria for Newsworthiness

  • Prominence—a person, organization or institution in the story is important or well-known.

  • Proximity—nearby; newspapers print stories about people and events in the community or region where their readers live.

  • Timeliness—something happening or important right now; most news stories reflect events in the immediate past or involving an issue that affects readers now.

  • Oddity/uniqueness—out of the ordinary, unusual; some stories are about people or events that are unexpected or special in some way—perhaps an athlete who displays remarkable ability or an unusual celebration.

  • Consequence—effects of a decision or event; newspapers publish stories about issues that affect readers directly or indirectly.
