Creating newspaper maps

I am looking for a way to create maps, graphics and charts for newspapers in a format that is consistent and easy to understand at a glance by the reader. For awhile, we've been creating maps by hand every time we need one. The problem with this is that its time consuming, and they are not consistent. Can anyone recommend any techniques in making maps? What software mapping programs or services are available either on-line or for download? There are sites that offer vector maps for purchase, but a custom service or software would be better. Preferably for OS10.

Looking more for something like a GIS program that will we can pull from with all the features and geography already built in rather than creating ones from scratch like in this program.

That looks good, but is there something similiar to ESRI's mapstudio for media that is not quite as expensive though. We'd like to find something similar to mapquest or google maps where we could type in an address and then get a map we could use with just a little modification.

Currently we use GoogleEarth pro for our maps.

I am checking out openstreetmaps. Seems like it could work.
