A way is to define your own format function.  For instance, i have this
function to display the from address with anything matching the regexp
jao-gnus--news-rx removed:

      (defun gnus-user-format-function-f (headers)
        (let* ((from (gnus-header-from headers))
               (from (gnus-summary-extract-address-component from)))
          (replace-regexp-in-string jao-gnus--news-rx "" from)))

the `-f' at the end or the name matters, it's the code to use in the
line format:  "... %uf ..."  stands for "user-defined function f"

hope this helps,
