Thus the answer is sought to the question about linguistic ways to make the reporter and the reader of the report present in the text. An analysis of selected fragments of texts by Ewa Owsiany, Ryszard Kapuściński and Piotr Pytlakowski leads to indication in the reportage stylistics such linguistic means which serve signalization and realization of intended by the author utterance functions, creation of typical of the genre qualities of the senders, recipients and their inter-relation, as well as spectacular presentation of the topic.
