A cover story is the story related to the image on the cover of a magazine. It’s the main feature of that particular edition. You could say, “This month’s cover story is about remote work. The Benefits And The Challenges.” A newspaper would have a top story or a lead story on its front page. It also matters whether something is above or below the fold on a front page.
