The News Pro theme is a Genesis Framework Theme created for any blogger who runs some type of news blog. The homepage design mimics a magazine style and can provide all kinds of information in its customized homepage.
This theme has a few built-in advertising blocks for earning revenue or promoting a service/business that you have. The perfect starter News Theme has all that you need to run a popular blog and is easily customizable. You will get free support on the StudioPress community forum and you can check out our Genesis Framework Tutorials for great tips and guides.
News Pro comes with a primary and secondary navigation bar, a side column and a unique homepage look with several useful widgets. To get the demo version look, you just have to follow the detailed instructions that come with this theme. This was the first theme I had ever used when I entered into the blogging world. I did a ton of modifications though it wasn’t to duplicate the look of the home page. I had a vision what I wanted and worked hard to make it happen. Let’s get to some of the features included.

Here is what the blog page looks like if you use the demo blog setup.
Here is a preview of the footer widgets. Looks like it’s just all categories and a autoresponder box in the demo version. You can still add any widget you want to in there. I’d suggest social links, About page and contact page at least. Again it’s your decision on what you put in this location.
