Longtime local television journalist Tina Shelton is leaving KHON Channel 2 to take a position with the University of Hawai'i medical school, the station announced yesterday.

Shelton will become the communications director for the John A. Burns School of Medicine. Shelton, whose last day at Channel 2 will be July 6, has been with KHON for eight years. The 25-year veteran of TV news also worked at KHVH news radio and KGMB-TV before joining KITV in 1985.

"She's been part of television news in this town for nearly three decades and we'll miss her experience, dedication and investigative reporting," news director Lori Silva said in an e-mail to the KHON staff.


Big Island consumers will begin paying more for milk when a 26-cents-per-gallon wholesale price increase takes effect Sunday. The state-mandated increase is meant to offset rising labor, feed and insurance costs at the Big Island's three remaining dairies.

Currently, Big Island dairy farmers get a fixed $2.28 per gallon for their drinking milk. That's the wholesale price paid to farmers. The state last raised the wholesale price of Big Island milk by 25 cents a gallon in 2005, the first such increase in 13 years.
