Free Magazine/Newspaper WordPress Themes

Want to have magazine or newspaper wordpress theme or template for free?. These themes can make your wordpress blog like cnn.com or any famous news website or blog.

These two themes are free, you can use it for fashion blog’s niche, or news blog. Themes indeed play important part of a blog. Since they are lots of good free themes out there, we do not have to buy.


I personally like the simple theme because i, as a non-techie blogger, can easily modify the theme files. But of course some people think themes with admin panel is much more easy, it really depends on you.

The list below are all free themes. If you look for a more professional news or newspaper theme for a cheap price with a good quality and really look like CNN site, you can get for 19$! See demo wordpress news theme here, or look for this theme gallery.

Another alternative, get News or Magazine SEO optimized themes from Genesis, StudioPress. Check out News and Magazine SEO themes.
