Hearst-Argyle Television Inc. sold $108 million of stock in an offering Thursday, substantially less than the broadcaster originally planned.

Hearst-Argyle stock has traded as high as $32 in recent weeks, so the broadcaster may have been hoping to sell the stock at a higher price. Hearst closed down 81¢ to $27.06 Thursday.
