A USC fraternity has been placed on probation after a student from another college was hurt during an event last week, prompting campus officials to strictly enforce a ban on weekday parties on the campus' Greek Row for the rest of the semester, authorities said. Greek organizations are allowed to have large parties only after 3 p.m. on Fridays and are required to register the events with USC administrators and the Los Angeles Fire Department. But fraternities and sororities had been permitted by the school to enforce the policy themselves and often had unapproved "mixers" during the week, according to students.

KCAL-TV Channel 9 weatherman Josh Rubenstein has been named chief meteorologist for KCAL and sister station KCBS-TV Channel 2, station officials announced Monday. His appointment is part of a restructuring prompted by the retirement in April of veteran weathercaster Johnny Mountain. Rubenstein, who had appeared on KCAL's prime-time newscasts since Jackie Johnson shifted from KCAL to KCBS to replace Mountain on the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts, will handle weather forecasts on KCBS' weekday 5-to-7 and 11 a.m. newscasts.

While KFI's management might be excited about its new Limbaugh-Gates weekday lineup, its listeners will soon learn that one-sided political discourse does not make for "more stimulating talk radio." RON KOBAYASHI, Tustin

I wish the producers of KNBC's 5 p.m. news would have Bill Lagattuta as an anchor during the week instead of Keith Morrison. Bill is so warm, great to watch and listen to and Keith is cold. I would love to see Bill do the weekday news. My friends also share this view. Sue Packard, Encino

Judith Michaelson just can't get beyond the fact that Michael Jackson is no longer on weekdays on KABC. Her obsession with Jackson borders on the ridiculous. In her Jan. 15 article, "Howard Ascendant," why is his name in the same paragraph with Ronn Owens and Rush Limbaugh, when the piece was about weekday morning ratings? When KABC made the switch from Jackson to Owens, I was very resistant to the change. Over the months, however, I've become a big Owens fan. I've found his talk show to be a breath of fresh air. Michael Jackson's weekday show is history, Ms. Michaelson.

Talk station KABC-AM (790) is turning to a former Republican congressman rather than a former Republican senator to fill the spot being vacated by conservative commentator Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly announced last year that he was giving up his nationally syndicated weekday radio show in the first quarter of 2009, and Westwood One, his distributor, said it had lined up former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) to take over. But KABC has decided instead to pick up the 2-month-old "The Joe Scarborough Show," featuring the former Florida congressman and current host of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC.

I have been a patron of the Insomnia Cafe since I have lived here (not quite a year). I am concerned about its troubles for two reasons. First, I feel that the whole tone of negotiations with this business has been confrontational as opposed to cooperative. From what I understand from The Times' coverage, the business has tried to be cooperative and to work with its neighbors. Second, I believe that Insomnia performs a number of valuable services to the community that have been overlooked.

Los Angeles area residents intending to go to the post office today may be in for a surprise as postal officials, seeking to cut $160 million from this year's operating budget, have closed down 21 offices on Saturdays and shortened weekday hours at more than 110 others. Mail delivery will still continue on Saturdays. However, there will no longer be Sunday pickup or processing, adding a one-day delay to mail delivery during the week.

While some airline passengers endured long delays at a few East Coast airports Monday, most of the nation's flights departed without significant problems on the first work day after budget cuts hit federal air traffic controllers. Beginning on Sunday, the Federal Aviation Administration ordered air traffic controllers to take one furlough day for every two-week pay period to cut about $600 million from its budget. Agency officials warned that the cuts would force the FAA to delay arrivals and departures to manage the flow of air traffic.

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Postal Service announced plans to end Saturday mail delivery starting in August while maintaining six-day delivery of packages, a move that faces an unclear future in Congress. Postal officials said the action was crucial to keeping the agency solvent. It would be the biggest change in mail delivery since the post office ended twice-daily service in the 1950s. Although the Postal Service no longer receives taxpayer funds, it remains subject to oversight by Congress, which since 1983 has repeatedly passed measures requiring six-day delivery.

Like thousands of other Angelenos, Heidi Hamilton was listening to the final "Mark & Brian" show on KLOS-FM while driving to work Aug. 17, and heard a tearful Brian Phelps announce that he - following in his partner Mark Thompson's footsteps - had decided to leave the station. For most listeners, it signaled the end of an era. Hamilton realized she'd just gotten a new job - Brian's. "Oh, my God," she recalled thinking. "I think my life's going to change in a big way. " Hamilton and her partner, Frank Kramer, will debut the "Heidi & Frank" show on KLOS-FM (95.5)

The developer of a proposed downtown football stadium is counting on a dramatic change in the behavior of L.A. sports fans, releasing a report Thursday that bets 1 in 4 ticket buyers would come to the 72,000-seat venue without a car on weekdays. With more than 19,000 vehicles expected to flood downtown for games at Farmers Field, Anschutz Entertainment Group's strategy for traffic hinges, in part, on convincing ticket buyers to travel via the Metro Blue Line, the upcoming Expo Line and other public transit routes.

In an effort to expand both its ratings and its spectrum of viewpoints, talk station KABC-AM (790) is turning to an award-winning journalist, a personality better known to television viewers than radio listeners over the last 40 years: Geraldo Rivera. Rivera will debut a 10 a.m. weekday talk show on Jan. 30 in which he'll take calls, interview guests and discuss the day's news, with an emphasis on Southern California. "I think I represent a big swath of the middle, and it's kind of drowned out, or nonexistent," said Rivera, who calls himself a liberal Republican with a far different stance on issues such as abortion and immigration than party orthodoxy.

Eleanor Mondale, the vivacious daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale who was a television entertainment reporter, radio show host and occasional magnet for gossip, died Saturday at her Minnesota home, a family spokeswoman said. She was 51. "Our wonderful daughter … after her long and gutsy battle against cancer, went up to heaven last night," the former vice president said in a statement emailed to friends. Mondale had left her job co-hosting a weekday morning radio show in Minneapolis in 2009 when she announced the return of brain cancer.

The other park visitors have gone home and Helia Buyck's jumbo bag of peacock feed--popcorn with Lite Salt--is but a crumpled wad of plastic in her hand. The crickets' chorus has started, or is it only now that I am hearing what they have to say? Striding purposefully toward the trees, the peacocks too are heralding the approaching darkness.

A group of angry Thousand Oaks neighbors is fighting to keep a scenic stretch of Potrero Road from becoming another Ventura Freeway. Residents such as Michele Bellerue say their houses are deceptively peaceful at midday, with hawks soaring above the national park across the street and even quail scurrying on the road. But on weekday mornings, the scene changes. The roadway in front of her residence becomes a busy commuter route used by truckers and motorists alike, Bellerue said.

More than five months after she was shot in the head while greeting constituents, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was released Wednesday from the Houston hospital where she had been undergoing physical therapy. The Arizona congresswoman will travel from a Houston suburb to the hospital each weekday for physical therapy, officials said. "Congresswoman Giffords has shown clear, continuous improvement from the moment she arrived at TIRR [Memorial Hermann Hospital] five months ago," Dr. Gerald Francisco, the hospital's chief medical officer, said in a statement.
