A consumer's guide to the best and worst of sports media and merchandise. Ground rules: If it can be read, heard, observed, viewed, dialed or downloaded, it's in play here. One exception: No products will be endorsed. What: Ed Arnold tribute. Where: KOCE, Channel 50, tonight, 7. In 1954, at age 14, Ed Arnold got a job at a radio station in his hometown of Texarkana, Ark., replacing the station's 78-rpm records with 45s. A few months later, he had his own one-hour show, "Rocking With Eddy."

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.
