news.fedoraproject.org is in the works, mainly for just that job.

Yes, but best is press.redhat.com; it's a blog output, several of us in
the Marketing SIG can post to it as "the Fedora team", and it is watched
by a growing number of technical and other press.  It's somewhere I'd
"post also", that is, output a press release to news.fp.o and make sure
a copy gets to press.r.c.

Maybe as we get into Alpha, John could post about accepted features to
the news.fp.o blog?  Seems like a good fit for the Feature Wrangler. :)
