Jim Lampley appears to be headed back to sports at KCBS, Channel 2. The station announced a revamped lineup of news anchors Wednesday, and Lampley isn't in the lineup. Sources say Lampley, who is being sent to Albertville, France, to cover the Winter Olympics, will move to sports when he returns, if he accepts the role. A station spokeswoman said Lampley is still under contract.

Hall of fame boxing trainer Emanuel Steward, who directed the careers of several champion fighters including Thomas Hearns, Lennox Lewis and current heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, has died. Steward's executive assistant, Victoria Kirton, reported the trainer's death at a Chicago hospital to the Associated Press on Thursday afternoon. Steward's family has not identified a cause of death. The personable Steward, 68, was one of his sport's greatest resources of information, and served as an analyst on HBO's most significant fights since 2001.

LAS VEGAS -- Minutes after Manny Pacquiao entered a post-fight news conference with an unmarked face, his injured opponent Timothy Bradley was wheeled into the same room. "There were three judges, and two of them thought I won," Palm Springs' Bradley said of his victory over Pacquiao. "What do you want me to do?" Bradley made it through the 12-round bout despite suffering a fractured left foot and a twisted right ankle during the fight, according to his manager Cameron Dunkin.

For most of his broadcasting career, Jim Lampley was driven to prove that he was more than just another jock. He postured himself as a serious sports reporter, angling for the money scandals and criminal cases that he believed served as metaphors for what goes on in the real world. And when given the opportunity to dump the fantasy land of wins and losses to become a news anchor at KCBS-TV Channel 2, Lampley didn't hesitate.

When they arrived arm-in-arm at the Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards last May 20, a buzz swept through the startled crowd. Many people gawked. At least one man dropped his cocktail. The worst-kept secret in local TV news was now out in public. With a simple show of togetherness, KCBS-TV co-anchors Bree Walker and Jim Lampley confirmed what their colleagues had been whispering for months: that while married to other people, the pair had become L.A.'s most visible office romance.

I have to disagree with Paul Moyer's quote (RYou cannot just sit Ken and Barbie up there. It doesn't work," TV Times, Aug. 5). There is a Ken and Barbie out there reading the news. (Jim Lampley and Bree Walker) are the reason I left KCBS Channel 2 and moved to KABC Channel 7. Thank you, Paul Moyer and Ann Martin for your excellent coverage on "Eyewitness News" at 5 and 11 p.m. Yvonne Beck, Glendale

Jim Lampley, who suffered a dislocated right hip about an hour before he was supposed to announce Saturday night's Roy Jones Jr.-Julio Gonzalez pay-per-view telecast, said Sunday he was feeling fine. "Just a little soreness and residual pain," Lampley said from his Beverly Hills hotel. "I'm up and walking around." Lampley said he will go home to Rancho Santa Fe today and plans to call an HBO "Boxing After Dark" show featuring Wladimir Klischko vs. Charles Shufford in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The first casualty on a night of head butts and swollen eyes and bloodied boxing rings at Staples Center Saturday was a member of the media, longtime boxing broadcaster Jim Lampley. Lampley, preparing to do the blow-by-blow account for TVKO of the three title fights on the card, suffered a hip dislocation when he stood after finishing a meal. A month ago, Lampley had his hip replaced for a second time.

Jim Lampley will be talking in pain Saturday night when he calls the TVKO pay-per-view fight between Oscar De La Hoya and Javier Castillejo. Lampley is scheduled for hip-replacement surgery Tuesday at the Grossmont Orthopedic Hospital in San Diego. It's a redo of surgery he had one year ago. Lampley, 52, is among an estimated 2,000 people who received a faulty hip implant manufactured by Sulzer Inter-Op. That number could grow.

I hope that the former spouses of Bree Walker and Jim Lampley realize just how fortunate they are to be relieved of these childish people. This "secret" romance has been well-known for a very long time and the fact that KCBS has not given Walker and Lampley their walking papers is a loss for the station. It is for this shameless behavior that I have not watched that channel for a long time. STEVE C. GARNET, Hollywood

Greg Gumbel will replace Jim Lampley as the host of NBC's "NFL Live" pregame show, the network announced. When Gumbel was signed last month, NBC said he would be used as a play-by-play announcer on NFL football. But Gumbel and Lampley have switched roles, with Lampley taking over Gumbel's play-by-play spot. NBC spokesman Ed Markey said the change was made because of Lampley's HBO conflicts and also because Lampley, who lives in Los Angeles, had to make weekly trips to New York.

In a move to lighten his work schedule, Jim Lampley is leaving KMPC radio, program director Len Weiner said Friday. Lampley, who hosted a morning show on KMPC, said his TV schedule had grown too complicated for him to continue on radio. He works on NFL games, Notre Dame football and golf for NBC and boxing and Wimbledon for HBO. Lampley is also expected to replace Bob Costas for the 1993 season as host of NBC's NFL studio show.
