Weird Word of the Week: Chyron

 
You know that streaming line of information that trots across the bottom of your screen during newscasts, distracting and annoying you so it's hard to focus on the program you're trying to watch?

That's a chyron, named for the company that invented it, now called the ChyronHego Corporation.

(Thanks to Wikipedia for this information.)
