How to add author by line?

the titles in news/magazine looks like:
title
summary

I'd like to add an author byline. I found a brief description in calibre/web/feeds/news.py, "In addition, you can add 'author' for the author of the article.", so I did. the list of articles returned by parse_index now looks like:

{ 'title' : article title,
'url' : URL of print version,
'date' : The publication date of the article as a string,
'description' : A summary of the article
'author' : xxx
}

but the output remain unchanged, how to add the author byline?

author byline is only used when generating periodicals for the Kindle or SONY which support special per article metadata
