On your desktop, a 1024x768 (or so) BMP (or JPEG, or TIFF) of Ricky Martin, itty bitty puppies (oooh!), or Los Barbudos arriving triumphantly into Havana. Or a small tile made in the GIMP, replicated to fill. The "wallpaper" of your monitor.

For an anchor or host on television, it might be wallpaper also, but is most often that thing in the corner of the screen (over his/her shoulder) that tells you what the story's about. As if just listening wouldn't do the trick.
