Newspapers are important sources of news and information. They carry news and views on a great variety of topics that includes politics, economy, business, society, sports, science, spirituality, environment, health and entertainment. Newspapers not only carry important national and international news, they also feature useful local news, views and information.

Newspapers have many pages. They also have magazine sections. These are usually devoted to a particular theme. There are magazine sections that deal exclusively with literature, films, travel or the arts. Newspapers also cover reviews and stories of recent releases of books, films and plays. Often these reviews influence the people in buying a book or watching a film or a play at a theatre.

New products and services launched in the market are also advertised through the pages of the newspapers. Important announcements and messages are also made known to the public through the newspapers. Advertisements are also brought out in newspapers for jobs available as also for houses available on sale or for hire. Various products such as vehicles and electronic goods available for second hand purchase are also advertised through the pages of newspapers.

Local weather reports are also published in newspapers. Information pertaining to travel to various destinations by train, bus and flight are also available in newspapers.

Newspapers are a must-read to keep ourselves abreast of what is happening around us. They carry authentic and wholly true news and information. Journalists work hard to collect factual and error-free information, news and data. Besides correspondents and reporters who work with newspaper publishers, various experts and well-known personalities also write articles for newspapers. These articles influence public opinion.

Editors and their editorial teams edit stories and articles before they are published in the newspapers. Newspapers also carry editorials that convey the views of their editors. Letters to the editors are also published in newspapers.

Newspapers are printed on newsprint, a very thin paper. Special sections of the newspaper are also printed on glossy paper. Newspapers are attractively designed and are printed in colour. They are low-priced and are thus very accessible to the people.

Newspapers are published in the broadsheet or tabloid size. While there are dailies that are published every day, weeklies are those brought out once a week. While there are dailies made available each morning, there are also eveningers that are sold in the evenings carrying the news and views of the entire day.
