EXPERT ANSWER

Hello Aratrika,
 
The following guidelines would help you write a newspaper report:
 
HEADLINE : This is the part where you tell your readers what your topic is all about. You can use your headlines to draw more attention by making them punchy and very descriptive. Your target readers must have a solid idea about the gist of your content by just looking at your headlines.
 
BYLINE: This is the part where you include your name as the author of your article. Just beneath this part, you can indicate the date when the article was published.
 
FIRST PARAGRAPH: This plays a very vital role while framing a newspaper report. Thus, it must be well-written, highly informative, and content-rich. Your readers must find all the important information in this part. You must also be able to answer all the questions that they might have in mind.
 
SUCCEEDING PARAGRAPHS: Depending on the data that you have gathered, you can use your succeeding paragraphs to present supporting data and quotes from key people involved in your chosen topics.
 
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This is optional. If you are writing an article as a follow up on the news that you have reported in the past, you should give your readers background information. This can help in encouraging better understanding.
 
Hope this helps!
Cheers!
