news value or relevance


Explanation:
A story's use by the media will depend on its newsworthiness--its importance and interest to readers or listeners. For example, the most widely recognized news peg for a science story is publication of the research in a refereed journal or delivery of a paper on the work at a major scientific meeting.

news peg


Explanation:
News is something that is happening now.

Features are more in-depth pieces, often longer than news items and not necessarily "date-specific" - they can be run at any time.

These two categories can be interdependent; for example, a newspaper may look for a news peg on which to "hang" a more in-depth feature story. So, for example, ME Awareness Day (May 12th), and in fact the whole of ME Awareness Week (the week in which May 12th falls) is a news peg on which to hang an in-depth personal feature about someone with ME. If you are interested in persuading a paper to run a piece about ME, it can be useful to suggest to them a news peg on which they might hang it.

So a link to in-depth articles/reviews etc.

'erotica' could be your news peg which you could hang a multitude of features on!

news peg


Explanation:
or "news hook"
Immediate (media)event providing an occasion for printing a news feature or more in-depth article.
These events provide a good reason to the reporters to cover (or "hook into") other issues.
"Erotica" is the issue, it needs a news peg (an event)- "erotica" is not a news peg itself.

In the link below you‘ll find a good example of how the launching of the "Day of the Five Billion Campaign" provided a news peg for "family planning".
extract:
"This event, planned by the United Nations Population Fund, marked the birth of the five billionth living person in the world—and created an effective news peg."

A good news peg for the issue "erotica" could be an international campaign by an organization for sexworkers’ rights –but this is my idea, the possibilities are endless.

HTH,
Erika

In short, a news peg is a news event that can form the focus of an in-depth feature.
