A lovely teenager named Courtney Chou Lee wore the crown and rode down Colorado Boulevard. But for many people who watched at home Thursday, the real queen of the 120th Rose Parade was the 65-year-old with the brilliant red hair and the relentless smile who described the pageant from high above the parade route.

KTLA Channel 5 had the best coverage of the Rose Parade. Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards did a fine job of reporting the event and offering commentary. The "stars of the show," the breathtaking floats, were covered from every camera angle and with vivid and complete verbal description. Mildred L. Harrigan, Alhambra

Hats off to KTLA for once again providing very entertaining and knowledgeable information about what is going on on the floats during the Rose Parade. Stephanie Edwards and Bob Eubanks are to be commended for having the intelligence, the humor and the great attitude that make it all so enjoyable to watch. Toni Jacobson, Monterey Park

SO MUCH ugliness in the news to get through each day: the financial crisis, suicide bombings, natural disasters, campaign mudslinging. However, learning that Stephanie Edwards would be back in 2009 to host the KTLA Rose Parade telecast I always used to watch but have skipped for the last two actually made me smile ["It Won't Rain on Her Parade," by Greg Braxton, Sept. 18]. This doesn't occur often while reading the paper nowadays. Steve Campbell Burbank -- GOOD, now I can watch that station's coverage again.

I am deeply disappointed that "L.A. in the Morning" is no longer on KCAL. I was a loyal viewer for many years and was impressed with the needed attention this program continually gave to serious societal concerns. The removal of this program, which was hosted by Stephanie Edwards, is another nail in the coffin of a literate and informed society as well as an informed electorate. I bemoan the loss of "L.A. in the Morning" and I know I am not alone. Elaine Livesey-Fassel, Los Angeles

The bloom is back on the Tournament of Roses Parade for veteran television host Stephanie Edwards. The red-haired personality said she is thrilled to be back in the KTLA-TV broadcast booth for this year's New Year's Day parade, especially after being demoted in 2005, then later dropped from the coverage team altogether, after more than 25 years. Edwards will be reunited with co-host Bob Eubanks at the annual Pasadena event, KTLA executives announced Tuesday.

There'll be no rain on the upcoming Tournament of Roses Parade for former KTLA-TV Channel 5 host Stephanie Edwards -- at least not figuratively. Edwards, the veteran broadcaster who was removed from the station's coverage of the New Year's Day event two years ago after co-hosting for more than 25 years, will return to her familiar role on Jan. 1, station executives said Tuesday. "The people at the station thought it was a great idea, and Stephanie thought it was a great idea," said station spokesman Paul Nichols.

KTLA dropping Stephanie Edwards from the Rose Parade is like taking the chocolate out of chocolate cake ["One Less Rose on KTLA's Parade Float," by Scott Collins, Dec. 29]. Has station manager Vinnie Malcolm never watched the Rose Parade? For 25-plus years, Stephanie has been the charming one, cracking jokes to Bob Eubanks' stiff, boring delivery. Prior to that, the KTLA parade coverage was hosted by Steve Allen and Jayne Meadows. Ever since, Stephanie has been Steve and Bob has been Jayne.

WHEN the Rose Parade starts Monday morning at 8, one familiar face won't be among the throngs lining Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. She'll be someplace else, someplace far away, 2,000 miles from Southern California, in fact, up north where it's freezing and people won't pluck roses again till springtime. For the first time since the Carter administration, veteran broadcaster Stephanie Edwards will be MIA from the No.

RE "Edwards Spends This Parade Out in the Cold," by Susan King, Jan. 3, and "Rain on Rose Parade Is OK for KTLA," by Scott Collins, Jan. 4: Memo to KTLA: Some things don't need to be improved. Some things are just tradition, like Bob Eubanks and Stephanie Edwards in the booth for the Rose Parade. After half an hour of this year's format, I turned off the broadcast. For the first time in 25 years, I didn't watch. Why, you ask? Because the spark wasn't there. The repartee wasn't there. The tradition wasn't there.
