    Hi umeedngo.
    I believe there are two type of sitemap.
    1. Page sitemap, containing list of links on the site. Good for navigation.
    2. Sitemap meant for Search Engine Consumption.
    I thought you were asking about the second sitemap.
    For wordpress and other CMS, there is a plugin that will automate the process on creating good news sitemap. News sitemap is different than regular sitemap and the plugins create it based on Search Engine criteria.
    Wordpress SEO has news sitemap support with add on module called News Sitemap. News Sitemap from other publisher also available in plugins directory.
    Use one of them and try it by yourself to judge which one is the best.
    Hope it answer your question clearly. If it isn't, I believe others will help you as with more useful answer.

    There are many requirements of new sitemaps, e.g. you need to retrieve a publisher name from Google. (And new sitemaps can only contain recent articles meaning you need to automate sitemap tools like e.g. A1 Sitemap Generator or find a WordPress/CMS plugin)
