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

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. Evelyn C. Sharp, Santa Paula

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

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.

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.

Christopher Nance and Vicki Vargas from KNBC-TV Channel 4 will help kick off the 13th annual AIDS Walk Orange County from UC Irvine next month.

The event, which has raised nearly $4 million since 1987, is expected to raise $650,000 this year for county agencies that provide AIDS support and education. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Mesa Field on the UCI campus.
