Rhode Island ticket hits Powerball for $336 million

| 1 Comment

The Star Tribune covered the story of the big jackpot winner from the small state of Rhode Island.

The reporter has organized the important elements so that location is the primary detail. He first states where the winning ticket was sold, and then the amount that was won. The winning numbers are then revealed to the reader, but the writer adds that the winner has yet to come forward.

The way the writer chose to organize the information was very effective in telling the story. With a fairly straight forward story like this one, it seems difficult to rearrange the information in a way that would improve the reader's experience with the article. Certain details like the name of the winner would add more to the story, but those details were unknown at the time.
