Regarding Howard Rosenberg's May 13 article about Kirstie Wilde, the former Los Angeles news anchor: I am curious as to why Wilde underscored the crazed heinousness of John Gacy's crimes by noting he was not just a garden-variety mass murderer but a "homosexual mass murderer!!" So, mass murder committed by heterosexual persons is more indicative of a healthy personality? KAREN AITCHISON Los Angeles

After less than six months as co-anchor of KTTV's "Fox News," Andrea Naversen was replaced on Channel 11's 10 p.m. newscast this week by former KNBC Channel 4 anchor Kirstie Wilde. "Our broadcast is still evolving," said Bob Morse, KTTV's general manager, "and all our changes are aimed at making it the best possible broadcast that we can put on. Kirstie is a proven success in this market. And we decided to make the change now instead of later."

It's a swell place to visit. On TV's itinerary of glamorous spots for career advancement, however, this area is Nowheresville . How is it, then, that a woman who was until recently a star anchor in Los Angeles will anchor two nightly newscasts scheduled to debut in August at a bare blip of a Fox-affiliated station in nearby Salinas? "This is the first time," she says, "I've worked without a contract." How is it that a former chief of NBC's Tel Aviv bureau is the news director?

What a predicament ("Channel 5 to Replace Leek With Ex-'Eye on L.A.'s' Carl," by Steve Weinstein, Dec. 5)! Three of the most attractive girls in the business, Jann Carl, Andrea Naverson and Wendy Rutledge, all on at the same time. Even if the charming Kirstie Wilde bumps Andrea, a third TV is a must. I'll take my hard, ugly news from the guys at 6 or 7 p.m. but by 10 I'd prefer that a beautiful girl deliver the bad news of the day to me . . . but, not three at a time.

We get letters. . . . This batch responds to last Wednesday's column on some of the tricks of TV news ("A Loud Assault on TV Phoniness") and last Monday's rave review of the Emmy telecast on Fox (" 'Sunday Night Live' from Downtown Pasadena"). Your knocking Judd McIlvain, the Channel 2 "Troubleshooter," is a puzzle. He does good, as you can see. He's a poor man's ombudsman. What's wrong with dramatic investigative reporting that also serves to be entertaining? "60 Minutes" does it. Tell us why this kind of reporting for McIlvain is unethical, but ethical for Harry Reasoner, Ed Bradley, Mike Wallace and yourself?

A man pointed a handgun at KNBC consumer reporter David Horowitz during a live broadcast Wednesday afternoon and demanded that he read a statement, but the program went off the air at once and the man was arrested a few minutes later. The weapon turned out to be a pellet gun, and no one was hurt. KNBC anchorwoman Kirstie Wilde said the intruder gained access to the studio by telephoning her and claiming to be Gary Stollman, the son of former on-the-air reporter-pharmacist Max Stollman.

The revolving door to the Fox-owned KTTV Channel 11 newsroom is spinning once again. Both anchors of the station's 10 p.m. news, Dennis Morgino and Pat Lalama, will be removed from their positions to make way for new news personalities in the next month or two, the station confirmed Monday. A KTTV spokeswoman said that both Morgino and Lalama, who served as reporters at the station before moving "temporarily" to the anchor desk, will be asked to stay on at the station.

Despite an expensive monthlong advertising blitz designed to introduce KTTV-TV Channel 11's new news anchors to Southern Californians, ratings for the Fox-owned station's 10 p.m. newscast did not improve during the November ratings sweeps. During October, without any promotion, Channel 11's prime-time newscast averaged a 3 rating in the A. C. Nielsen service (with each rating point representing 46,527 households).
