See my suggestion below.
I watch Ch 2 news every morning between 5-7 AM. In order for me to be able to see the news as it goes across the bottom of my TV screen I have to get up and walk over from my bed to be able to see the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen. I would like to suggest that there are many people like me who cannot see this news as it goes across the screen.. I happen to be watching two other stations news this past weekend while your station was airing the horse racing. They happen to have a black background where yours is light gray and their letters in white are much larger than yours. It was quite easy to see from far away.
I would appreciate you looking into this for all people with eyesight problems both young and older.
