Change page or news page authors
please add the possibility to modify the page author so e.g. the comms dept is able to add news posts from the Executives. The People Web Part is not sufficient for our business request and a general editors account is not allowed.

Frankly I'd like more control over the "Byline" altogether. Let me decide if I want to show the Author, time, how many views the page has had.
Most of the organizations the executive news are published by content authors, so it is very very important to be able add Author / Published by to be a person other than who created in the system. This is critical, please consider introducing this feature to take advantage of the NEWS for all the digital workplaces

Is there also a plan to offer this for documents?

Corporate Communications most definitely don't like/want bylines. How to remove other than code? This was a problem in former versions of SP, always had to jump through a hoop to get rid of bylines in publishing.

Also with modern sites and news, the CreatedBy property is reused in all listings, both on the global SharePoint landing page and in the mobile app.
Sender is incredibly important when publishing content, so there must be a way to override created by. I would prefer one simple property for Author, which if populated, would override CreatedBy in all views/listings.
This is a major blocker for realising modern sharepoint news as a corporate news function. Currently all our news seems to be written by one marketing person - which is not true.
