This research is motivated by the results of observations during journalism lectures. When writing news, vocabulary mastery is required. Mastery of vocabulary is important in writing skills, including writing news. In fact, it is not yet known the level of contribution of vocabulary mastery to news writing skills. Mastery of vocabulary is important for one’s writing material. Starting from this, this study intends to explain the contribution of vocabulary mastery to students’ news writing skills. This study uses a quantitative approach with a distributional correlational method. The population of this study was students of the 2014 FBS UNP Indonesian Language and Literature Study Program. The sample consisted of 51 people taken by a simple random technique using the Taro Yamane formula with a precision of 10%. The data were collected using a news writing skill test and a vocabulary mastery test. Based on the analysis of the research data, it is known that vocabulary mastery contributes to news writing skills. Thus, the results of this study have implications for learning news writing skills. If vocabulary mastery and journalistic knowledge are not considered in learning, student news writing will be less good. So, it is suggested to some parties such as students to increase their vocabulary mastery; for lecturers/teachers to build student vocabulary through increasing reading assignments.
