Where to go for stories…

  • events online (Time Out, What’s On etc)
  • newspapers – looking for angles on the same story
  • follow up pieces, taking the story in a new direction or going back to a story and updating it
  • looking at nibs and making full stories
  • looking through the archives (anniversaries, birthdays, what happened after the story, where are they now, what happened after)
  • who do you know – have you heard anything interesting? ask your friends about anything shocking, funny, inspiring
  • business pages, charity organisations, notice boards
  • social media – looking for people posting interesting comments and follow them up on Facebook and Twitter
  • PR people – they represent and get people into the public eye. Useful to phone upĀ and chat to
  • news wires – raw news
