Congratulations to former CBS 3 local anchor and one-time Daily News film critic ("Anchorman") Alycia Lane (left). Alycia, who now co-anchors "Today in L.A. " for NBC4, after some unpleasantness on the East Coast, won an Edward R. Murrow Award for writing a TV news story chronicling the effects of the rare genetic disorder Angelman Syndrome, a condition that affects one in 20,000 children. Alycia said she hoped that the award would draw attention to the syndrome.

FORMER CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane gave birth to her first child, a little girl named Averie , this weekend. Lane is between on-air gigs at the moment, after a stint at KNBC in Los Angeles, where she currently dwells. Lane told me earlier this year that she'll restart the job hunt after she's settled in as a momma. "She's beyond adorable," Lane wrote to me in a message. "Totally in love!!!"   Williams, Oates celebrated Brian Williams , one of the greatest heads of hair in all of broadcast news, will be feted by Temple University for something other than his cranial follicles.

PHILADELPHIA - A Philadelphia judge has tossed a defamation suit brought by a news anchor against her former station after her one-time co-host hacked into her emails and leaked private information. A Common Pleas judge threw out Alycia Lane's suit against KYW-TV and some of the claims against Larry Mendte, the former colleague who claimed to have had an affair with her.  Lane accused the station of defaming her before and after she was fired after being arrested in December 2007 following a scuffle with a New York City police officer.

  VIOLA DAVIS   won't be taking up residence in Philadelphia any time soon. The Philadelphia-set ABC show "How to Get Away with Murder," created by Shonda Rhimes ("Scandal"), was scheduled to shoot in the city but will now relocate to Los Angeles. The show, starring the Academy Award-nominated Davis, is still set in Philadelphia and the pilot, which will premiere in a block after Rhimes' "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" in the fall, will still feature scenes from our fair city.

IT'S NO LONGER such a hoot, is it? Gossiping about Alycia Lane and Larry Mendte is no longer fun now that serious accusations have overshadowed the giddy scandal. Mendte was fired Monday amid allegations that he illegally accessed Lane's e-mails and leaked them to the media to destroy her. Lane was fired six months ago and told her side of the story for the first time in a lawsuit filed against CBS 3 last week. And so it appears that while Lane was being publicly ridiculed, Mendte was the one who was allegedly behaving in a scurrilous, perhaps criminal, way. Lane, it appears, may have been a victim of character assassination, not of her own character flaws.

A Common Pleas Court judge last month struck down ex-CBS 3 anchor Alycia Lane's lawsuit against her former colleague Larry Mendte and bosses at CBS Broadcasting, but the legal battle wages on. Judge Matthew Carrafiello simply wanted a shorter version of the filing for the court to read. The judge ruled Dec. 1 that the complaint filed by Lane's lawyer Paul Rosen be "stricken," according to court documents that the Daily News recently obtained. "The court finds the complaint fails to state facts in a 'concise and summary form,' " according to notes handwritten on the court order.

News item: CBS3 anchor Alycia Lane tried to call Gov. Rendell last Sunday during an Eagles-Cowboys game to "tell her side of the story" of her encounter with a New York City cop. She didn't get through until Monday. But what if she had? Governor: Hello? Lane: Hi, governor! It's your favorite hottie TV news woman! Governor: Leslie? Lane: Guess again. Governor: Cecily? Erin? Lane: No, it's Alycia, governor. A-l-y-c-i-a. Governor: Alycia! Can you hang on a minute, sweetheart?

About two hours after jury selection was to have begun, Common Pleas Court Judge Marlene Lachman announced Friday that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court had stayed the trial of the civil suit by Alycia Lane against her former coanchor Larry Mendte and their ex-employer, CBS, pending a ruling on a change-of-venue petition filed by the broadcaster. It could be weeks or months before the trial resumes - wherever it resumes. A spokesman for the Administrative Office of Pennsylvania Courts would say only that "it's really unclear as to how long it will take.

For Alycia Lane, the future comes down to trust. Can the anchorwoman fired on Monday by CBS3 after allegedly assaulting a New York police officer last month still get a TV news audience to take her seriously? If she can sustain her credibility through this public relations maelstrom, she will in all likelihood continue to work as a newswoman, if not in this market, then in another. And if she can't? "I don't think Fox is still doing celebrity boxing," said Robert Thompson, professor of television, radio and film at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.

WORD GOT OUT that Alycia Lane was fired from her anchor job in LA last week. It turns out former CBS3 anchor Larry Mendte is also looking for work. Mendte and Lane were embroiled in scandal in 2008 when he was busted for hacking into Lane's email. A spokeswoman at New York's PIX11, where Mendte did commentary pieces that aired locally on PHL17's "Eye Opener," confirmed that Mendte was no longer with the station. When I inquired why, I got no response. Mendte's last report for the channel, on swimmer Diana Nyad , occurred on Sept.

FORMER CBS 3 anchor Alycia Lane was at the Lenox Hotel in Boston on Monday, about a half block from the finish line, to cheer on a friend. She gave an account of what she experienced to the "Today" show Tuesday, and spoke with Brian Williams on NBC's prime-time special report Monday night. "We could feel the ground shake below us, and everything on our table shook," she recalled to Williams. "Ten seconds later, a second blast hit, and we looked outside and saw a plume of smoke up in the air. " She also brought up an interesting point: Police told Lane and other bystanders to turn off their cellphones so no devices would be accidentally detonated remotely, out of fear that the bomber was still in the crowd.

LARRY MENDTE is free and clear. For now. Common Pleas Judge Allan L. Tereshko has dismissed the remaining claims filed against the former CBS 3 anchor by ex-colleague Alycia Lane . But Lane's attorney, Paul Rosen , made it very clear that he planned to appeal the ruling. Tereshko dismissed the civil case filed against CBS 3, but had allowed some of the charges against Mendte to stand, pending further investigation. Those final claims were dropped last week after the judge found that Lane had deleted key emails from her computer.

Larry Mendte 's attorneys have asked WMCN TV to hold off airing what was to be the first episode of "A New Dawn," his wife Dawn Stensland 's weekly program that debuts at 7 p.m. Thursday. In the episode, already taped, Mendte and Stensland discuss the impact on their marriage from his conviction on illegally accessing former CBS 3 coanchor Alycia Lane 's emails. And while we understand Lane's name is never mentioned, nor particular details of the situation, Mendte's attorneys still believe it best to delay the footage until a judge rules on the civil case Lane brought against Mendte for his actions.
