Using jQuery to animate RSS feed via PHP parser

This is mostly a question on strategy. I want to build a page that shows stories from an RSS feed sorta like this:

1 big main story (title, picture, description)
4 upcoming stories on the right (picture and title)

So when the 1 big main story has been up for 1 minute (or any other interval), it fades away. As that happens, the most recent upcoming story on the right column fades out and fades in to the big main story area. Then, the remaining stories in the right column slide up, so there's still 4 stories.

I've done this before with ActionScript in Flash, but I'm waiting to accomplish this using just jQuery.

Any ideas on what steps I should take to accomplish this? Are there possibly examples online that I could use to do this?
