KGMB to KHNL: we're taking over!

This week has been a hard week for KHNL. A couple of months ago, KGMB, KHNL and KFVE announced a shared services agreement combining news operations into one studio (KHNL's newly created studio) which saved KGMB from continuing to use their aging studios (which is next to my college: Heald College). Since then, layoffs literally cut KHNL's staff down to 4 people.

As stated by Honolulu Advertiser's article entitled "KHNL era fades to dark Monday" [LINK] KGMB is literally taking over KHNL's studio. Personally, I saw a preview of the new studio and KGMB brought over their set (which IMO is the best news set in the islands).

For those people interested, there's a PDF file showing the new crew and line up [LINK].

Effective Monday, October 26, 2009 - KHNL is dead.
