One way would be to use the wikiforms recipe, which sets pages using
:Term:Definition text markup, so page text variables can be used to
generate a list of news items from a custom pagelist.

However, I can see why one might prefer to put all the news on
one page. The trade-off is between developer convenience (a page
per news item means it can be done with off-the-shelf components)
and writer convenience (a single news page means some custom
development to take the page apart and extract the news items).
