  Longtime Boston TV news fixture Jack Hynes delivered an angst-filled 
commentary on last night's final WLVI produced "Ten O'Clock News" . Starting 
tonight WHDH Channel 7 will produce the 10 PM news airing on Channel 56.

   I watched last night's final broadcast. I thought that Jack Hynes looked 
bitter as he vented the frustrations of himself and  the roughly 150 WLVI 
staffers sent to the unemployment line a week before Christmas. After some 
chatter and thank yous, the final few minutes consisted of video snipets of 
the WLVI staffers waving bye to the camera, ending with the lights over the 
empty anchor desk slowly fading to black.

   Here's a link to a brief Boston Herald article about Hynes' comments last
