What is a Reporters Goal?

A reporter’s goal is to provide an accurate story that the public can easily understand. When a reporter receives an assignment, they perform research to learn the facts of the story. This can involve arranging interviews with people associated with the event, such as witnesses or experts, and fact checking.

Stories are assembled according to the media platform they’re presented on, and Delaware Newsline may require reporters to present the stories on more than one platform. As a reporter, you may specialize in a certain field, such as education or the environment, or take on general assignments on a range of subjects.
