Aesthetic Indices in Newspaper Sports Reporting

Pages: 32-38
Authors: Godspower Udoh, Joseph Akpabio, Uwem Akpan
Apart from the overall design of a newspaper page, there are specific aesthetic issues that need to be taken into consideration while reporting sports for the masses. Some of those specific aesthetic issues are textual and non-textual. This article, therefore, examines those relevant aesthetic and indices that should be considered in newspaper sports reporting. It observes that many newspapers, particularly in Nigeria, appear not to take interest in applying certain textual and non-textual aesthetic principles that would make sports reporting a more enjoyable experience to readers. Accordingly, the article identifies and exemplifies certain newspaper sports reporting aesthetic indices. It concludes that with closer attention to the application of the identified aesthetic indices, newspaper sports reporting could be a more rewarding experience to publishers of sports news and their readers.
