What are three ways in which the lead can be found during news gathering?

This all depends on the type of story that you will be writing.
In news writing, your lead should begin and mostly talk about the most pressing issue or event that the story talk about. In other words what is most important to the reader. Then you should find the 5 W's and the H (Who, What, When, Why, Where, and How) also called the nut graph.
In writing a feature, your lead should be like the start of a good story. Find what is the most interesting aspect of what you are covering and focus on that to be your lead.
In writing an editorial, you lead should show what issues your opinion will be on and then tell what your stance is on said issues.
