Dear, Russ. I wonder if you can find any articles on woman's basketball because me and my sister really love basketball and my brother plays it. I really hope you can.
Thank you for telling me what articles are important to you, Kennedi. We have a special story coming out this week all about women's basketball. I hope you love it -- and your brother and sister too!

I love the Venus story!. Thank you for putting such an inspiring story.
You are very welcome, Axel. I enjoyed learning about Venus and speaking to the experts who study it. This weekend I spent time staring at Venus in the sky and imagined volcanoes erupting on its surface! πŸŒ‹

Hi Russ. I love March Madness. I have a question for you. Who do you think will win the men’s March Madness? PS Can you please answer this soon? Thanks.
March is a fun time for sports, that's for sure. I know that Purdue will NOT win the men's tournament! I will guess Houston for the men and South Carolina for the women. We will see! πŸ€

Russ, do you like or love your job? I know that you already like your job. This year, I have a mission. Find cute hairstyles that I like. Yesterday, I found 2 at once!
Are you kidding, Betsy? I LOVE my job! I get to learn all about the world every day. It's so much fun! Your mission seems cool. Good luck finding new hairdos! πŸ‘¨β€πŸŽ€

Hi Russ. I liked that article on cheese some time ago. I love cheese. It is my favorite food.
I love cheese too, Sophie. And I really enjoyed getting to write the article about the championship cheese contest. Be sure to see the video for that story. It includes my interview with the champion cheesemaker!

Hi Russ! I live in Japan, so when you guys posted news about Japan, i was soo happy! A lot of Japanese people make this dish called β€œhanami bentu” and eat it while checking out the cherry blossoms. You guys should also come to Japan, and check the beautiful cherry blossoms. We’ll be waiting for you guys!
Thank you so much for telling me more about the cherry blossoms in Japan! I hope to someday see the flowers bloom there. Maybe I can enjoy some hanami bento!

Hey Russ, have you read Wonder? It's a GREAT book. And if you haven't you should read it.
Yes, Finnley, I HAVE read the book "Wonder." And I agree with you. It is a fantastic story! News-O-Matic once interviewed the author. You can read about that by searching by the author's name, R.J. Palacio!

It was really cool that Jennifer Keelan had all that GRIT!
I agree, Harper! I think she was so brave to take part in the Capitol Crawl at age 8. Did you see her in the Video? Wow! She is so strong! πŸ’ͺ

Hi Russ! It is so cool to be talking to you. I always wonder where do you get such great ideas for your articles. Also do you have any articles about women's soccer? I love soccer so it would be cool to learn more.🫠🫠🫠
It is cool talking to YOU, Ali. I get the story ideas from lots of places. That includes other news sites, friends, and even News-O-Matic readers! You can suggest a story idea in the News Room. It helps us decide what types of articles to write about! (Also, we have written MANY articles on women's soccer! We recently covered the SheBelieves Cup.)
