News Entry

NEWS STORY STRATEGIES

News stories on the CED website are displayed in a number of ways and places:

  1. As news-summary feeds on the CED home page and Department home pages
  2. As full news stories under Events + Media on the CED website
  3. As news summaries in CED e-News
  4. As syndicated items on secondary pages on the CED website

Space is limited in news stories so:

  1. Be concise yet information-rich when crafting story headlines.
  2. In the News Content, offer as many of the "Five Ws" as possible (who, what, when, where, why)
  3. Provide available links to websites that offer readers additional information about the story or subject.
