Curiosity Is A Necessity
Of the six aspects of being a good reporter that the article "To Be A Successful Reporter", I believe that curiosity is one of the most important. Curiosity is what a reporter runs off of and what drives him (apart from paying the bills and a love of journalism of course). Curiosity leads a reporter to investigate and dig up information that isn't on the surface and that the other newspapers and reporters don't have. A good reporter investigates the past and present of his subject, thoroughly digging into the meat of the story. A good reporter needs the information and details that the other reporters don't have, that's what makes him a good reporter. So in all, curiosity is a definite must when it comes to being a successful reporter.
