Both news in my industry or just general news. I mean feel like I'm aware of what's going on in the industry, but I don't really keep up with general news.
That depends entirely on who's conducting the interview but you could probably count on being asked about news in your interview. Now what news you'd be asked about is an interesting question because that can vary a ton. I suspect that an interviewer for an engineering role may not bring up some news about geopolitics, but they may ask you about a new software library that's came out and your opinions on it. It's really all about context, and overall it's probably pretty helpful to stay on top of the latest news in your field. Hope that helps!!!
