The news page is very similar to an Editorial Article Page in layout, with the addition of the date showing on the page and the card. Also, it is this page type that gets used in the Recent Articlelist widget.
Widgets on this page
Above the content:
Related Cards widget (keep in mind this widget displays by default along the bottom of the page, too)
Contact Person widget (recommended to place the Contact Person widget in the top placeholder so you have the ability to shift other cards above or below)
Note: you can move widgets around within each place holder, but not between placeholders. I.e. you cannot move the Embed card under the Recent articlelist, but you can move it under the Download, Rich Text, Related Cards and Contact Person widgets.
The placeholder at the bottom of the page is the default Related Cards Widget, based on tags on the page.
