Miss Claudia Trejos should only keep her chin up ("Claudia Trejos Keeps Her Chin Up," Aug. 16) to show her perky, pretty face, because that was the only criterion deciding her position in sportscasting. The essential prerequisite to broadcasting is articulation, particularly in sportscasting, which is delivered at a speedier pace. The fact that Miss Trejos has an accent is certainly, in my opinion, a disadvantage, but not as egregious as accenting the wrong syllable, running sentences together and mispronouncing words, all of which she is guilty of. Nevertheless, this is unimportant, according to KTLA's news director, Jeff Wald.

Five years and millions of dollars later, all Jeff Wald has to show for his experiment in creating a local newscast for the "Star Trek" generation is a reputation as the station with "the newspeople who stand up." At least that's better than "the newspeople who walk around," which is what the anchors used to do--aimlessly, pointlessly, Wald admits--when KCOP-TV Channel 13 unveiled its much-delayed, multimillion-dollar newsroom and attempt at a hip-but-serious news style nearly two years ago.

KCOP Channel 13, for years a mere 98-pound also-ran in the local news wars, is planning to adorn itself with the electronic trappings of a heavyweight contender and vows to slug its way to the top. To say the station is bucking a trend is an understatement. The combined audience for the well-financed and heavily promoted newscasts at the three network-owned stations has been declining steadily for more than year.

The fierce local TV wars took a dramatic turn Monday when Jeff Wald, news director of powerful KTLA Channel 5, said he was quitting to take over the news operation of low-rated KCOP Channel 13. Wald, who joined KTLA in 1981, helped build it into an almost unbeatable force among L.A. independent stations with a veteran news team that includes Hal Fishman, Stan Chambers, Larry McCormick and executive producer Gerald Ruben. Fishman co-anchors KTLA's winning nightly newscast with Jann Carl.
