A week after former KNBC news anchor Tritia Toyota signed with KCBS-TV Channel 2, KNBC weatherman Kevin O'Connell has followed suit. He is expected to begin appearing on the Channel 2 news next week, a KCBS spokeswoman said Tuesday. However, a decision on which newscast he will work was not immediately made. KCBS management is still deciding how it will staff the various news programs now that Toyota is on the premises. She is due to make her first on-air appearance Monday.

Thank you for your informative interview with John Beard ("At Channel 11 News, 'It Just Feels Better,' " Jan. 8). We concur absolutely with Beard regarding KNBC-TV local news coverage--frankly, it's a joke. KNBC, along with KCBS and KABC, delivers news that insults every viewer's intelligence. We could care less about the Michael Jackson situation until all the facts are in. (Thanks anyway, KNBC!) Whereas KABC previously led the pack in sensationalizing the news, KNBC has now taken over that ranking.
