Since the two proposed properties represent roles that a certain person has for a certain NewsArticle, I am in general inclined to not recommend individual properties for each role but rather use a generic property "typeOfContribution" or "role" and have that link a) the NewsArticle (or CreativeWork) with b) the Person via an intermediate node (e.g. http://schema.org/Role) with enumerations (internal or external) for popular roles.

Otherwise we will end up with a mess of properties.

But this of course really a tradeoff between conceptual beauty and cleanness on one hand and ease of markup on the other.

Just my 2 cents from experience
