Extra, extra, read all about it! If it’s new, important information, it’s news. Some news is broadcast on television, printed in newspapers, posted online, or even yelled across a classroom.
Your brother might tell you he's got great news for you — important or exciting information that you haven't heard yet. Other kinds of news could be about world events or approaching storms or a tragedy that affects your city or town. In the fourteenth century, news literally meant "new things," from a Latin root, nova, or "new." The phrase "no news is good news" has been around since the 1600s.
