Hi

Do these make sense, especially the red parts? Any suggestions please?

  1. He called and told me that there was a clip running on TV that gyms and marriage halls had been ordered closed too across the province.
  2. He called and told me that there was a strip running on TV that gyms and marriage halls had been ordered closed too across the province.

Thanks,

Tom

We don't talk about clips or strips like this.

We'd typically say something like this.

If you mean the words they run along the bottom of the screen during newscasts, I call them tickers, after the tickertape you see on financial channels. There seem to be insider names for them like crawler and slide, but I don't think anybody would know what you meant. So
