Newschannel is a pretty versatile theme, that places the emphasis of the home page and archive pages on featured images. It would be great for a personal blog, but would also be good for a local news site or even a photography blog.
You know what’s black and white and red all over? A newspaper! My son thinks that joke is hilarious and it is the inspiration for the Diginews theme. Designed to be simple and clear and focus all the attention on the content this theme is great for local news sites, personal blogs and journals.
