coverage

The word "coverage" is used as a noun when talking about media such as television, radio, print, and the internet. The information that is reported is the coverage of the event. It's what reporters choose to show and say while the event is happening or after it has happened.

  • Coverage of the election results showed who won last night's election.
  • CNN provides 24-hour coverage of national and international news.
