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.

Why do TV news readers feel they must be "sexy"? They are there to impart information, not use my time to develop themselves as a "personality." I was glad to read in The Times ["Anchors Take a Sexy Turn," by Greg Braxton, April 14] that I am not the only one in Southern California to think that some local news stations have gone too far. Perhaps that's why I've stopped watching them: because of their lack of professionalism. Sheri Benge Corona There is no room for a sex kitten in the newsroom.

Tom Arnold appears to be going, but not gone entirely, from Fox Sports Net's "Best Damn Sports Show Period." Negotiations between the host and FSN continue, with the likely outcome being Arnold will disappear from the daily set but be a regular presence for the show at major sporting events. Arnold has served as the show's host recently, but his contract, which reportedly pays him $1.1 million a year, is due to expire next month.

A recent Calendar article discussed TV newswomen who emphasize sexuality to promote themselves and their newscasts, even using magazines and websites to flaunt their physical attributes ("Anchors Take a Sexy Turn," April 14). Reporter Greg Braxton observed that this phenomenon has heightened concerns about the boundaries between journalism and show business, with many denouncing the practice. I say the practice hasn't gone far enough.

For Fred Katayama, it was a moment of profound inspiration. As a Monterey Park fifth-grader in the early 1970s, he came home from school one afternoon and encountered a figure on television who would change his life. "I ran into the kitchen and I said, 'Mom, there's a Japanese-looking man on TV!' " Katayama recalls. "It was Ken Kashiwahara, who at the time was a reporter for Channel 7 'Eyewitness News.' It was a strong reaction.
