Health problems speed anchor's departure
Veteran local news anchor Christine Lund has exited KABC, again.
Lund, who has been off the air for more than a month while battling pneumonia and a broken leg, had planned to ankle KABC at year’s end, but the health problems speeded her departure. Lund most recently anchored KABC’s 11:30 a.m. newscast.
Lund was a mainstay on KABC from 1972 until 1986, when she left the TV biz to concentrate on raising her children. She returned to an anchor’s slot on the ABC O&O in 1990.
