Thanks for everybody feedback. I was wondering whether 'i-news' could be
suitable? Otherwise, I will go for 'news-rss-ticker' for package name
although I'd like to find a shorter name for binary/command (and am
running out of ideas...)

There's a comercial software called inews (http://www.avid.com/US/products/inews) don't know if i-news is a good name :)
