The Basic Parts Of A Newspaper

The basic parts of a newspaper differ slightly between tabloid and broadsheet newspapers. Tabloid newspapers tend to be more focused towards informing the audience whilst also entertaining it, and broadsheets aim more to present solid facts and expert opinions. A tabloid newspaper will be made up of the following: y Headline news - usually including the leading story featured on the front page, along side some advertisements and bits of celebrity news.

A variety of news articles, ranging from politics to foreign affairs and everything inbetween. A celebrity news section, featuring tidbits on celebrity activity, and photographs of celebrities mixing with the public. An entertainment section, featuring media reviews and a few games, such as Sudoku and crosswords. Many papers will include an 'agony aunt' section, where people can write in for advice on matters of the heart. The agony aunt is usually an ex counselor or someone who was once involved in therapy. The last few pages are usually dedicated to sport news, and the back page is very much the sporting equivalent of the front page. It carries the main sporting headline of the previous day, along with a photograph and a story that spills onto another page within the newspaper. The newspaper may also have supplements, or pull-outs. These can be magazines containing TV listings, a separate sports magazine, or a celebrity magazine.
