Migrate announcement items to modern news posts

I have a lot of classic announcement items in SharePoint on premise that I would like to migrate to modern news posts in SharePoint Online.

I have found descriptions of how to modernise classic pages automatically (, but these announcement list items seem to be something else than classic pages. I also have other list item types that now need to become modern pages, like FAQ items.

Does anyone know about a way to migrate classic list items to modern pages automatically?

I have access to ShareGate, so I can use that tool to fix the metadata, such as dates, authors, promoted state etc later. Often it is possible to map to another content type in ShareGate, but unfortunately I have not found any way mapping of a list item to a modern page in ShareGate either.

There is no such method to migrate classic items to modern list using Microsoft migration tool, we could only migrate the announcement list to modern site.

For the ShareGate tool, I suggest you seek support in its official page.
