Do you have community story such as a special event, human interest, research, or neighborhood update?
YBEAM Youth Reporters can cover your story! Project YBEAM gladly accepts tips and suggestions from Maui County community members!
SUGGESTIONS: special events, sports, an accomplishment, research, human interest, breaking news. *Requests for event coverage should be submitted 1-2 weeks in advance of the event.
3 MAIN ELEMENTS OF A GOOD NEWS STORY:
1. NEWSWORTHY – Is it new, interesting, informative, \”real\” news? Is it part of a trend or happening concurrently with other existing news?
2. TIMELY – Did it (or will it) happen within a two week window of when the story idea is submitted?
3. LOCAL – Is there a local, personal, or human interest angle?
