Veteran KNBC-TV weatherman Christopher Nance has been let go by the NBC-owned station after months of uncertainty regarding his job status, stemming from what he says are unfounded allegations of sexual harassment. Nance -- who joined the station in 1985 on its weekend newscasts and most recently appeared mornings, including local weather updates during the "Today" show -- was suspended in August for what the station described only as "a personnel matter."

In a lawsuit filed against NBC, KNBC-TV Channel 4 and its general manager, former weatherman Christopher Nance alleges he was the victim of discrimination at the station because he is black and read the Bible at work. According to the L.A. Superior Court action filed this week, Nance claims he was fired on Dec. 27, 2002, because of race and his religious beliefs. He is asking for compensatory damages and wants the station ordered to rehire him.

A judge Wednesday ordered a Pasadena woman not to harass KNBC-TV weatherman Christopher Nance after he complained that the woman has stalked him for at least four years, sending him love letters and breaking into his Northridge house last month. San Fernando Municipal Court Commissioner Marguerite McKinney ordered Angie Marie, 28, not to have any contact with Nance and his girlfriend, Lisa Gibson, and to stay at least 100 yards from Nance's house and office.

I find offensive the criticism of Christopher Nance (Viewers' Views, March 30). I think the young man is delightful with his cheery face, quick sense of humor, refreshing naturalness and impeccable appearance. A bouquet of carnations to him. I still love Fritz (Coleman) too.

Hats off to Christopher Nance. Having watched him for the last year, I cannot tell you how delightful it is to see someone grow in stature the way he has. He just blossomed. He brings such joy to his job but at the same time he is all professional. Judy Neiderhaus, Isla Vista

Thank you, KNBC, for giving us the handsome, erudite and delightfully voiced news anchor Keith Morrison. The inflection of his voice and frequent changes in tone and pitch make the dullest news seem exciting. But why, oh why, has the station inflicted their viewers with Christopher Nance? His high-pitched, fluttery voice sounds as if he is nervous and has been holding his breath. Please, let's have a weathercaster that doesn't grate on one's nerves. Lillian Seymour, Garden Grove

I am fed up with the continued criticism of KNBC-TV's live coverage of last month's earthquake, in particular the reaction of Kent Shocknek and Christopher Nance, who went under their desks. This was most likely the safest and sanest thing they could have done in the situation, especially with the large studio lights swaying above their heads! How can anyone criticize and call those actions "unprofessional journalism" (Viewers' Views, Oct. 18)? Those people were as frightened as the rest of us, the difference being they were not afraid to show it. I applaud them for their honesty.

Reporters and anchors at KNBC-TV Channel 4 have been grappling with an unexpected scoop about their colleagues that has caused tension and embarrassment within the newsroom. A two-page list detailing the approximate salaries of the station's on-air talent was mistakenly mailed to staffers last week, provoking some friction between some of the higher-paid personalities and their lesser-paid colleagues, sources said.
