23 News Graphics Comments

23 News recently added a news ticker to the bottom of your television screen.

What it does is run highlights like a banner throughout the newscast of both local and national news.

We have gotten a lot of positive and negative feedback about this recent addition and wanted to know what you thought.

We are always looking for our viewers feedback.

    I love the news ticker and hope you keep it. It's great to get the main news right away and then be able to listen to the rest while getting ready for work. Please keep it so I don't have to watch the other channel before switching to channel 23.

    My husband and I find the scroll very annoying and distracting from the reporting. We would rather have the story just reported. We have changed the channel if repeated to often.

    Personally I do not care for the new graphics, Just because other news have it, why do you? I always watch 23 for the news and weather. Why fix what isn't broken?

    Multitasking while trying to watch the news is not easy. The ticker tape is named properly though, that is it ticks me off.

    I'm not in to it much.

    I find it annoying and distracting. Also when an anchor's name or a "headline" is added above the ticker, 1/3 of the screen is covered.

    I really don't like it as I really want to concentrate on what U are saying nd have a hard time listening to U and trying to read the ticker news also. Please remove it. If we want the other news we can turn to CNN Thanks

    My wife and I do not like it. It is too distracting from the newscaster's report.

    I have noticed the news ticker, but I don't pay attention to it. If it is important enough news, it will be brought up during the newscast. I have noticed the news ticker just repeats itself after two or three minutes or so, which i guess is okay for channel flippers, but annoying for someone that watches an entire newscast. But, thats the way it is on any news channel with a ticker.
