How to Add a News Ticker in WordPress
On the next screen, you will have the ability give this particular news ticker a name, ticker text and link. For each ticker, you can add as many ticker items as you like. If you want to add another ticker item, then press the green + button to add the next item on the ticker. Once you are done adding ticker items, scroll down to Ticker Mode. There are three different ticker modes available. Scroll, rotate, and list. The scroll mode is the default one because it is the most commonly used in television networks. Rotate is another good option if you want to show one ticker at a time.
