In archive-news.php, i've tried

global $wp_query;

$tax = $wp_query->get_queried_object();
echo $tax->name;

But this gets the taxonomy, not the taxonomy term.

I need to print the tax term name for each entry on the archive page which lists posts in the custom post type.

wp_get_post_terms did the trick
