KHON-TV to name new president and general manager

By Erika Engle

LAST UPDATED: 04:45 p.m. HST, Feb 26, 2013

New KHON-TV parent company LIN Media confirmed the departure of President and General Manager Joe McNamara effective today.

No successor was immediately appointed to head Hawaii's Fox and CW affiliates, but "we will be naming someone here very quickly," Scott Blumenthal, LIN Media executive vice president for television, told the Star-Advertiser.

Leadership changes after station sales are common, though McNamara had led KHON through a previous ownership change. 

LIN purchased KHON and 16 mainland sister-stations in May.

Maybe now they can put a better morning news team together. The morning crew looks like its all fun & games instead of doing a better job reporting on the news. Between Trini & Olena, Trini is definitely the better newsperson as Olena seems to immature reporting the news & way meaning & way to silly sometimes. This is an opportunity to for KHON to get back the audience they loss. They could also go HDef like HawaiiNewsNow.
