    I stopped using Ticker-style displays when I switched to WordPress, but I had previously had to replace <marquee> with ticker.js because of browser incompatibility issues.

    As a result, I haven't tested any of them, but I do see lots of "ticker" plugins. Try searching for "ticker" here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/search.php

    Otherwise, I'd be exploring a JavaScript solution.
