We have been done similar in ancient times, it was callled dailypackages
what name has been taken over by myself, because the original Chris Tyler's
blog series content is dead since 2008. But still can be found some
remaining fragments at source. 
If you check it, you see that every post is goes around an specific theme
(Artsy Tuesday, Productive Monday, etc) , so with that if we copy the
method - we can cover every group activity, and everyone can select one
"candy" within his interest. Also if possible, I would like to add not only
news about new codes (Fedora Hosted projects), else QA testing news,
how-to's and perhaps requests too as a developers/engineers "corner" page.
Under requests I would like to see callings for tasks - Like we are looking
for xy workgroup testing, or set or write documentation, or whaterver. Also
if you add some contests, and rare stuff (1 fedora keyboard, mice,
keychain, etc) as a contest if the task is done, we can have our own Fedora
Summer of Code slowly, and more better code.
With these touches, we can achieve more active community, more feedback,
and the marketing team can be the backup for ambassadors, feedback of the
teams, and the contact with the PR.
HTH with my ideas.
