KCAL-TV Channel 9 weatherman Josh Rubenstein has been named chief meteorologist for KCAL and sister station KCBS-TV Channel 2, station officials announced Monday. His appointment is part of a restructuring prompted by the retirement in April of veteran weathercaster Johnny Mountain. Rubenstein, who had appeared on KCAL's prime-time newscasts since Jackie Johnson shifted from KCAL to KCBS to replace Mountain on the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts, will handle weather forecasts on KCBS' weekday 5-to-7 and 11 a.m. newscasts.

In a major shake-up at two local stations, Pat Harvey, one of the most prominent news anchors in Los Angeles and the most identifiable personality of KCAL's prime-time newscast, jumped Wednesday to the anchor desk at sister station KCBS. Harvey, who helped launch KCAL's prime-time newscast two decades ago, will now anchor the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts with Paul Magers at KCBS. His former co-anchor Laura Diaz has moved to a solo anchor slot on KCBS' 6 p.m. newscast. KCBS weekend anchor Sharon Tay has succeeded Harvey as co-anchor of KCAL's 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts.

KCAL news anchor Pat Harvey can still recall her edgy excitement generated decades ago by not only the imminent launch of an ambitious and historic broadcast but also by widespread predictions of failure. It was March 5, 1990, as the now veteran broadcaster positioned herself behind the anchor desk, the focus of a sparkling new set on a Paramount Studios sound stage. After months of planning, a rash of hirings and upgrades that cost more than $30 million, she was on the front lines of an unprecedented experiment -- a nightly three-hour newscast.

An Orange County lawmaker who inadvertently broadcast explicit remarks about his sexual conquests over an open microphone during a lull in a Sacramento hearing abruptly resigned from office this afternoon. Assemblyman Mike Duvall (R-Yorba Linda) stepped down after legislative leaders stripped him of his committee posts this morning and launched an ethics probe of his actions. "I am deeply saddened that my inappropriate comments have become a major distraction for my colleagues in the Assembly, who are working hard on the very serious problems facing our state," Duvall said in a written statement.
