News is information about recent events occurring in the society. This can be given through a number of media: verbal communication, print, broadcast, postal, wire services, or via the reporting of witnesses and observers to such events. The news can also be represented by a number of graphs, pie charts, or other graphical representations of data.
In newspapers, the most commonly read news stories are those concerning local or national affairs. These are categorized according to political, environmental, international, and social interests of the subject matter. A typical British newspaper includes important national and regional news stories as well as those from internationally known publications. It also carries some information about the local and national interest of other countries, which are sent through the post. Many English newspapers also provide a series of international news items, which are considered international news and thus not published within the UK.
The modern media has allowed a great expansion of news and information. Newspapers now publish daily and often internationally known news stories. Television news shows broadcast newscasts on a regular basis and some even provide audio-visual news segments as well. Some radio channels and websites also offer live streaming news.
