NB: This is an older theme that is no longer being regularly updated.
NewsBeat is a straight up two column blog theme with an old school newspaper aesthetic. Obviously it is widget ready, supports custom themes and has a full width template so it is still pretty flexible and can be used for static web sites as well as blogs, or combine the two. It’s free so download it and give it a whirl.
