News anchor Christine Lund, whose recent return helped KABC reclaim bragging rights as Los Angeles' rights as Los Angeles' top-rated afternoon news station during the important November ratings sweeps, furrowed her brow. In the middle of an interview in her small windowless office, a garbled voice had just descended from an unseen speaker requesting Lund take a telephone call. "Excuse me," she said kindly. Lund began punching buttons on her telephone, but couldn't retrieve the call.

Re "Back From the Ranch," Steve Weinstein's Oct. 10 article on newscaster Christine Lund: Like many other Southern Californians, I'll be welcoming the return of Lund to Channel 7.

Few people would give up a high-paying job as one of Southern California's most popular TV anchors to learn how to shear and slaughter sheep, spin yarn, make paper and can food on a small suburban L.A. farm. Nor to spend summers without phones, television, washing machines or stores on an isolated, bear-infested island in Alaska. Christine Lund did. "I don't want to be thought of as a kook," she says.
