Need to display the category in the news article in the red box of the OOTB features in SharePoint Online.

For example I have the category for the news:

  • Sports news
  • Technology news

Can I display it in the news article in the image below with the red box?

Is there any way to do this in OOTB?

Or else in custom way, can anyone recommends me a good article for SPFx.

Thank you so much appreciate your help.

Unfortunately, you cannot customize SharePoint out of the box news web part to add more column values in the news web part.

However, you can develop a custom news web part as per your requirements using SharePoint framework(SPFx).

Documentation: sharepoint-framework-overview

You can build custom web parts like below to SharePoint news:
