It looks like that runs gnus-after-getting-new-news-hook, so you could
do something with that. I didn't see (looking only quickly) whether
there is a value passed to it based on new news or not though.

Also remember that Emacs has its own "biff" functionality with
display-time-mode, so you might be able to hook into that.
