    recap the news/recap the headlines

    Does it make sense to say 'recap the headlines'?

    If yes, is there any difference between recap the news and recap the headlines?

    Re: recap the news/recap the headlines

    Yes. 'Recap (recapitulate) the headlines' means to repeat them after a news report.

    A news bulletin usually starts with the headlines, then gives more details about each story before finishing with a recap/review/repeat of the headlines.
