KCBS-TV has made formal requests to Nielsen and Arbitron ratings services to exclude Thursday's KABC-TV's evening news broadcasts, which featured an extended live simulation of an earthquake disaster, from analysis in the just-begun May ratings "sweeps." Four KABC news broadcasts--aired Thursday at 4:00, 5:00, 6:00 and 6:30-- featured dramatizations of a major earthquake and its aftermath. Robert Hyland, KCBS vice president and general manager, submitted a letter to Nielsen and Arbitron Friday calling the broadcasts "a stunt."

Keith Olbermann not only brings sorely needed intelligence to TV sportscasting, but he has no apparent agenda other than to tell it like it is ("Knowing it All," by David Davis, Nov. 26). It's refreshing to hear a real sports journalist, rather than the lemming-like wannabes who now overpopulate the airwaves as they pander to and gush about mostly spoiled, overpaid athletic entertainers. Jerrianne Hayslett Simi Valley Davis captured Olbermann better than any writer in recent memory.

Concerning the June 19 article, "The Little Station That Might": We suggest that KCOP's station manager, Rick Feldman, who said that "no station in this market has a news product that they can really be proud of," take a look at KCBS-TV, Channel 2. We are proud to have been awarded the prestigious Peabody Award in 1989 for Chris Blatchford's series about alleged ties between MCA and organized crime. Harvey Levin's series exposing deplorable conditions in Los Angeles' city-owned housing projects, which resulted in immediate improvements, received the nationally recognized Ohio State Achievement of Merit Award.

The popularity of the TV entertainment hit "America's Funniest Home Videos" has prompted KCBS Channel 2 to consider including a similar element in its nightly news, according to the station's general manager.

In his first month as general manager at ratings-beleaguered KCBS-TV, Robert Hyland dumped the 7 p.m. newscast, replaced it with "The People's Court" and rehired one of the architects of last October's disastrous "news wheel" format--a format that lasted exactly three weeks. But Hyland maintains that he is committed to bringing back the KCBS golden era of tough, no-holds-barred, nuts-and-bolts hard news. Witness, he says, last month's local Nielsen sweeps derby.

New Boss at KCBS-TV: As the May sweeps end and all of its local newscasts continue running third in Los Angeles, KCBS Channel 2 has done a little front-office sweeping. Steven Gigliotti has been named vice president and general manager, replacing Robert Hyland, who resigned. Hyland had been the station's head man since April, 1987. Gigliotti, a 16-year veteran of CBS, has been vice president and station manager at KCBS-TV since February, 1990.

What a delightful article. It serves to remind me that love is still "a many-splendored thing." Unfortunately, there always seem to be some negative overtones from a few when happiness abounds. If these few find that Bree's and Jim's decorum doesn't meet their standards, nobody's stopping them from changing channels. I agree with Robert Hyland that one's personal life should be respected.

Those fun guys in local television are at it again. With the May sweeps ending today, KABC-TV Channel 7 decided to run a profile of Geraldo Rivera on its 4 p.m. newscast Tuesday up against the "Geraldo" talk show on rival station KCBS-TV Channel 2.
