Should Bree Walker conceive a child? Believe it or not, and KCBS-TV Channel 2 anchorwoman Walker still can't, that was the driving question for two hours on a KFI-AM (640) talk show last month. "Is that a fair thing to do? Is it fair for Bree Walker to deliver this child?" host Jane Norris asked KFI listeners. Walker, married to KCBS-TV co-anchor Jim Lampley, is pregnant.

This letter is in response to your article (Dec. 14) regarding support given by Evan Kemp Jr., chairman of the Equal Employment Opportunity Council, to KFI radio. The article states that on my talk show I debated whether TV news anchor Bree Walker Lampley should abort her pregnancy because her disability could be inherited by her baby. Let me set the record straight. The question asked was: Would you (Mr. & Mrs. Southern California) conceive a child knowing your baby would have a 50-50 chance of inheriting your disability (in Bree Walker Lampley's case the bones of the hands and feet would be fused)

What a contrast between Bree Walker and Jane Norris ("Bree Walker Blasts KFI's Baby Talk," Aug. 17): One has a happy nature that makes a physical flaw seem insignificant, while the other reveals the real disability of an unkind heart. JEAN LEE Westminster

Regarding "Bree Walker Blasts KFI's Baby Talk" (Calendar, Aug. 17): The KFI-AM show with Jane Norris disputing Walker's right to have a child has disturbed me for weeks. I don't think Norris "handled this with a lot of sensitivity," as she claims. She stomped on a female caller who told her that the show's viewpoint was bordering on fascism. Norris squelched the caller's opinion so soundly that anyone would need guts to call in and differ with her opinion. I believe in free speech, and, yes, I realize KFI hosts (like Action News)

Voices of ignorance. . . . One of the shrillest and most obnoxious of late belongs to Jane Norris. It's been nearly a month since the two-hour stint on KFI-AM (640) in which she aggressively questioned--and even came close to attacking--KCBS Channel 2 news anchor Bree Walker's decision to have a child with her husband and co-anchor, Jim Lampley.

Walker Drops Suit: KCBS-TV Channel 2 anchor Bree Walker said Thursday she will drop her Federal Communications Commission complaint against KFI-AM and two of its talk show hosts. KFI personalities Tom Leykis and Jane Norris were cited in Walker's October complaint for broadcasting programs in which she and her husband, Jim Lampley, were allegedly criticized for opting to have a child at risk for a genetic deformity.

KCBS-TV Channel 2 anchors Bree Walker and Jim Lampley filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commissions on Thursday against radio station KFI-AM(640) and its parent company, Cox Broadcasting Corp. On July 22, KFI talk-show host Jane Norris asked listeners to call in with comments on whether Walker, then pregnant, should conceive a child, given that the child faced a 50-50 chance of inheriting her ectrodactylism, a rare genetic condition that results in fused fingers and toes.

This baby talk was no fun. It was an insensitive blast at people with disabilities. Jane Norris of KFI-AM radio hosted a two-hour talk show last month on whether KCBS-TV anchorwoman Bree Walker should have become pregnant. Walker is expecting her second child, who stands a 50-50 chance of inheriting her rare genetic condition called ectrodactylism, a malformation that causes fused fingers and toes. Walker and her first daughter both have the condition.

The Federal Communications Commission's mass media bureau has formally rejected KCBS-TV Channel 2 anchorwoman Bree Walker's complaint that radio station KFI-AM (640) attacked her during two talk shows last summer. Paul Steven Miller, who filed Walker's complaint last fall in an effort to have KFI's license revoked and its management punished, said Wednesday that Walker is still "weighing her options" and may appeal the decision to the regulatory agency's five commissioners.
