Well, I’ve already quizzed you (several times) with newspaper headlines so I thought I’d get with the twenty-first century this week and give you some chyrons to read. I didn’t even know “chyron” was a word until just recently. In case it’s new to you too, they’re the headline captions you see on a news broadcast and they get their name from the Chyron Corporation, which specialized in creating them.
