Hard news/soft news content of the national broadcast networks, 1972-1987

Journalism Quarterly [Summer 1992]


Copyright (c) 1992

Abstract: The amount of soft news (human interest, feature, or nonpolicy issue stories) found in major network news programs over a 16 year period (1972-1987) was investigated through a content analysis of the Vanderbuilt Television News Abstracts. Although the amount of soft news increased over the years, it remained a relatively small proportion of the news program.
