Email Notifications for news widget

I’m creating a template that will be used by for multiple sharepoint sites and was wondering if there is any way that site users can receive email notifications for new news updates so that they don’t have to constantly check the site. This has to be turned on out of by default in the “template” so that each site owner who uses the template doesn’t have to set it up manually. If this isn’t possible are there any alternatives? I’ve looked into the announcements list with flow but it doesn’t seem like they support each other either. Thanks 🙂
