KABC-TV, which fired about 50 employees last Friday, laid off sportscaster Ed Arnold Tuesday. Arnold had been at the station for 11 years. The firings were part of a series of budget-cutting moves at ABC-owned stations nationwide by the network's new owners, Capital Cities Communications. Reportedly, as many as 30 or 40 more people might be fired at KABC, which had 350 employees before Friday.

Steve Roah, Channel 5's weekend sportscaster, has been fired, effective July 1, Jeff Wald, the station's news director, confirmed Tuesday. A likely replacement is Ed Arnold, who was Channel 7's weekend sportscaster until he was fired six weeks ago. Arnold worked at Channel 5 before moving to Channel 7 about 11 years ago. Reportedly, Joe Torre, the Angels' TV commentator, auditioned for the Channel 5 job but is not considered a strong candidate. Torre is also a former major league manager.

While I appreciate your article about Claudia Trejos ("Claudia Trejos Keeps Her Chin Up," Aug. 16), you greatly miss the point of why people (such as myself) have complained about her to KTLA. It has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with her having an accent: It's about her (lack of) sports knowledge, and her inability to speak English properly. I have nothing against a woman sportscaster. There are several (at least five I can think of) who are quite capable. In fact, Robin Roberts and Jeanne Zelasko are two of the better sportscasters, period.

I watch Keith Olbermann because I will see something I won't see anywhereelse-humor. That is, humor because his work is original, he has a clever play on words and sometimes he's just plain silly. More than this, he places events in historical perspective with a knowledge of tradition and obvious love of the games. He knows what really matters (i.e. the San Francisco earthquake; Jim Abbott's signing; the Donnie Moore tragedy) in personal as well as sports perspectives.

A bubbly Claudia Trejos is describing her first nights as KTLA-TV's weekend sports anchor. "I held on to the desk and said, 'Help me, God. I know I've been a bad girl, but you got to let me hang in here,' " she says, giggling. Trejos is more lighthearted than one would expect right now. As a transplant from the Spanish-language sports scene, Trejos' appearance on KTLA a month ago had a cold reception from some English-language media critics.
