Peter A. Lund, president of CBS-owned television stations, resigned Thursday to become president of Multimedia Entertainment, the company that produces Phil Donahue's show. Lund, 46, had previously served as president of CBS Sports and has been in his current position for three months. "Yes, I'm going off to be in show biz," Lund said.

You mean it wasn't Lund's intelligence, her training or her hard work that helped "to lead the station to a longstanding position of dominance"? It was her hair and eyes? Gosh. Makes you wonder how a mutt like Walter Cronkite ever got anywhere. HEATHER BURNS San Luis Obispo

Zach Lund has grown. His hair has not. The two are related. This should be Lund's second Olympics as a member of the U.S. skeleton team. Instead, he's a rookie with a lot to prove. Four years ago, when he was at the top of his game -- ranked No. 1 in the world -- he was banned from the Turin Games for using finasteride, a drug that fights baldness but also was thought to be a steroid-masking agent. Its use was legal until 2005, then banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency, and Lund insisted he never knew about the switch.

Only hours before the opening ceremony, Zach Lund, the top U.S. skeleton racer, was ruled out of the 2006 Olympic Games on Friday because he had used an anti-baldness product with a substance that can be used to mask steroid use. The Swiss-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) issued a one-year ban. Lund, 26, of Salt Lake City, tested positive at a World Cup race in Calgary in November.

The World Anti-Doping Agency has filed an appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport over the Olympic eligibility of U.S. skeleton racer Zach Lund.

Like many golfers looking to make a name for themselves, Bill Lunde circled the days June 12-15 on his calendar several months ago, but in the back of his mind he figured it might be wishful thinking.

In a stroke of bad timing that could portend a brewing management shake-up at Westinghouse Electric Corp., Peter Lund is stepping down as president and chief executive of the company's CBS television and cable division on the eve of its annual meeting with more than 200 affiliate stations. Sources say Lund's resignation, which the company would neither confirm nor deny, results from a power struggle with Mel Karmazin, Westinghouse's single-largest shareholder and CBS Radio chief.
