Journalists, reporters, editors, producers and design teams will all work together to write, produce, print and diffuse newspapers. These are normally daily or weekly so the work is fast paced and often hectic as newspapers hurry to release breaking news as quickly as possible after it happens.

Many journalists in all areas of the industry gain experience early on by working for a newspaper, whether local or national.

Newspapers across England will offer a wide range of international and local news, sport news, commentary and opinion pieces. By 2007 there were 6580 daily newspapers across the world selling 395 million copies a day. However this took a knock during the worldwide recession in 2008 and an increase of web-based alternatives. Advertising and circulation had a serious decline and many papers closed as a result.

More and more, newspapers are having to adapt to changing technologies and readership demands. Newspapers now usually come with an online edition, so employees must also be aware of how to write for websites.
