Prominence, proximity, currency, timeliness, impact and human interest are the main factors that determine newsworthiness. Timeliness refers to harder hitting stories and key developments in a story that would lose their newsworthiness if not reported immediately. With the rise of the 24-hour news broadcast it is outstandingly important that stories be gathered, selected and accessed with high-speed and ease.
PressMonitor allows for setting up Breaking News alerts that deliver news items straight to your mailbox as soon as they are published and indexed. You can also set the alerts to transfer the news hourly or daily. Furthermore, you can set the format to .html, .doc or .pdf.
Breaking news alerts can also be customised with company headers and logos.
