KGMB and KHNL news "merge" - sad farewells

KHNL/KFVE, KGMB Merger To Cut 68 Jobs
"There are 198 full-time employees at the three stations. KGMB employees were told 130 will be kept, and about 68 from either KHNL or KGMB will lose their jobs."

Among those cut:

Diane Ako;

Sharie Shima (in healthier times).

It's a sad day in TV journo-babe history.

But if it means no more "Think About It" segments, it might just be worth it.

It is definitely a sad turn of events.However I don't watch local TV as much as I used to. Thus this change will have a minimal effect on me.
