  1. Developing Specific Story Ideas What Should We Really Cover?

  2. How Do I Find A Story? • News Sources • Reporters (YOU!) • Biggest Source of News • Everyday Contact w/People in your area • Observations = Ideas • Investigative – Find Something Wrong and Expose It

  3. How Do I Find A Story Cont…? • Contacts • Those In Your Area That Regularly Comment On News • Who is that for us at LM? • Principals • Superintendants • Lead Teachers • Coaches/Club Sponsors • Security

  4. How To Probe Contacts For a Story • Avoid Being Vague. Don’t Ask… • “What’s Going On” • “Do you have any story ideas for the news?” • Be Engaging and Specific. Ask… • “What’s Your Next Project?” • “What are You Working On Right Now?” • “What’s Your Organization’s Largest Concern?”

  5. How Do I Find A Story Cont… • Other Local Publications • Local Newspapers – College, Professional, HS • Local News Programs • New Angle • Related Story Ideas • e.g. NCAA sanctions story  Athletes Cope Higher Eligibility Standards

  6. How Do I Find A Story Cont… • File Drawer • 31 File Folders – Marked and Dated • Map Up-Coming Local Events • Calendar of Stories

  7. Story Topic vs. Story Idea • Start with Topics (Broad) • Lead to Story Ideas (Specific) • E.g. – “Dress Code Story” vs. • “A story about the administration's new proposal to require students to dress up on Mondays and how the students are rebelling.”

  8. Activity • Use the internet to search local publications. Use them to inspire stories that could be based on your understanding of proximity and relevance. • Use the worksheet I’ve given you to test the quality of each story. Find out if they are quality stories that we can use.
