Display multiple rows on asp.net website

I am trying to display multiple rows for my asp.net website.  I have the code behind that gets the data and I am passing that to a label tag.  It works but only shows the first record.  I have 3 records I want to display.  Here is my code behind:

   For I = 0 To dr.Tables("News").Rows.Count - 1
            'MsgBox(dr.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(1).ToString())

            lblHeadline.Text = (dr.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(1).ToString())
            lblDate.Text = (dr.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(2).ToString())
   Next

Here is the inline code on the asp.net page:

  <asp:Label ID="lblHeadline" runat="server"></asp:Label>
    <br>
  <asp:Label ID="lblDate" runat="server"></asp:Label>

I am posting images of what it does now and what I want it to look like. What it is doing What it is doingPic2.png

Why not use an repeater and add the datatable to the repeater as datasource and put the following code in the itemtemplate:

<%# Eval("NameOfYourColumn") %>

Have you tried to bind the table to an asp:repeater control?  Your inline code would be part of the ItemTemplate with databinding...
<asp:Label ID="lblHeadline" runat="server" Text='%# Eval("Headline") %>'></asp:Label>

The News & event could be in the HeaderTemplate..

Ok tried datarepeater but no data:

 Dim Repeater1 As New Repeater

 For I = 0 To dr.Tables("News").Rows.Count - 1
            '    'MsgBox(dr.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(1).ToString())

            '    lblHeadline.Text = (dr.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(1).ToString())
            '    lblDate.Text = (dr.Tables(0).Rows(I).Item(2).ToString())
           

  Next

Repeater1.DataSource = dr.Tables
Repeater1.DataBind()


and


 <asp:Label ID="lblDate" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Headline") %>'></asp:Label>

you can do this on the front:

<asp:Repeater ID="repHeadlines" runat="server">
<HeaderTemplate>
 News &amp; Events
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Label ID="lblDate" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("Headline") %>'></asp:Label>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:Repeater>

And this in the code-behind:

repHeadlines.DataSource = dr
repHeadlines.DataBind()
