    I've been looking for ages but I can't find any theme that closely mimics this :
    http://www.wnyc.org/news/

    Look how nice and clean the posts look :

    http://www.wnyc.org/shows/bl/episodes/2007/10/30

    Any ideas on a wp theme that emulates this?

    Something like this would also be great :
    http://www.ap.org/newsvalues/index.html

    The old BBC layout was also really nice, clean, and simple. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/832450.stm

    This style is also great but maybe with half of the right column cut off.

    Sorry to keep asking, but I'd like to get working on something. Anybody have ideas? I just can't find anything in the themes database like this stuff.

    Could ask the author's of some of those sites for recommendations...

    Also consider joining the wp-pro email list at http://lists.automattic.com/mailman/listinfo/wp-pro and submitting a request for professional assistance to that email list.

    For the http://www.wnyc.org/news/ site create a main container div and use background image with drop shawdow on both sides. Add a header and menu div. Then add four column's. Finish by adding your footer div.

    <div id="container">
    <div id="header">Your Header</div>
    <div id="menu"></div>
    <div id="left_widget_colunm"></div>
    <div id="post_column"></div>
    <div id="right_widget_column"></div>
    <div id="advertising_column"></div>
    <div id="footer"></div>
    </div>

    I have created a mock up of this site. The WordPress Theme Viewer currently does not allow new themes to be uploaded. When it does I will upload a working theme.

    mlcarey1959 ... I certainly would like to receive your mock up of the wnyc.org/news site. It looks like something I've been wanting to use for our web site.
    I have a Journal which contains religious material but want to present it in a 'newsy' kind of way.

    I hope I can get the mock-up.

    mlcarey, that sounds awesome.

    kbrowder, I knew I wasn't the only one looking for something clean and concise like the WNYC website. I just can't find anything on the theme database.

    Here is the initial mockup. It displays correctly in the latest IE NS FF and Opera browsers. I should have a complete working WordPress Blog in a few days.

    Thank you sir, that looks awesome!
    If you're taking suggestions, here are mine :
    No shadow on left border or lighter shadow
    Perhaps a similar "newsroom" bar on the right side with options to insert your own mini-headers.

    Thanks mlcarey1959. Now all I have to do is try to figure out how to use it :( Newbie +++.
    I do appreciate your abilities with WordPress.

    I had a problem adjusting the gradient fill for the background shadows. They did not come out like I wanted so I changed the background image. You can check it out here: MLCarey

    You can also download the completed theme. Radio Blog Theme
