Providence, R.I.-based LIN TV Corp. said today it has completed its acquisition of KHON-TV and stations in seven other cities from New Vision Television.

LIN TV said the acquisitions bring its stable of TV stations to 43. Seller New Vision Television recently emerged from bankruptcy.

In May, LIN announced it was buying 13 stations for $330.4 million and assumption of about $12 million in debt.

LIN TV Corp would do well to get rid of Joe "The Boor" Moore while they're at it. Never seen such a self-centered prima donna as he.

That whole station needs a makeover. They all seem to be on qualudes compared to HawaiiNewsNow. And if you're going to have women reporters, drop the 'eye candy' ones. Tanya Joaquin and Ramsey Wharton are solid reporters.
