One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A line in a newspaper naming the writer of an article.
- ‘What does the byline on a newspaper story signify?’
- ‘The articles produced direct traffic to the site as well as numerous inbound links because of the link created in the article byline.’
- ‘At least one editor said he uses datelines to tell readers where the news occurred, and he often puts datelines and bylines on stories in which the reporter remained back in the office and worked the phones.’
- ‘In the future I will read any article that has your name in its byline (if I bother to read it at all) with a very critical eye indeed!’
- ‘Her eyes searched for the byline to see the name of the reporter.’
- ‘We need to teach students that bylines and datelines represent a pact between the reporter and the reader, viewer, or listener.’
- ‘Those I know have given up trying to pay for me for such things, but they'll still offer to help place anything I produce, if not write the article for my byline.’
- ‘Give the name on the byline an italic touch, and somehow the visual rhythm of the text may be altered for the better.’
- ‘You have permission to publish this article electronically free of charge, as long as the bylines and links in the body of the article and the bylines are included’
- ‘We also think today's newspaper requires more than bylines.’
- ‘In hundreds of newspapers, we see female bylines from datelines across the globe in all sections of the paper.’
- ‘And always try to include keywords in the headline and byline of your article.’
- ‘Please do not use this article without the byline and resource box.’
- ‘You are always running after some line - either a byline or a deadline.’
- ‘You will develop a flair for short, pithy phrases that will identify you as the writer, whether your byline is published or your story is magically morphed into a brief.’
- ‘All bylines take a title line, which should be put on a second line.’
- ‘My ex-boyfriend had gotten his first byline in the newspaper of record with an essay about me, him and our shared past.’
- ‘Publish the link in an article byline or blog as soon as possible.’
- ‘In journalism, female journalists used to hide their gender by the ploy of using their initials rather than their first names in their bylines.’
- ‘Impressed by media since her childhood, she fancied to work with a TV channel or get her bylines published in newspapers.’
