Jim Doty is the newly-installed vice president, general manager and director of sales at Scripps’ KERO, in Bakersfield, Calif.

Doty’s rather sudden move leaves his old station, Sinclair’s WJAC in Johnstown, PA in a leadership vacuum.

He’d been gm there for five years.

His departure comes as the news director continues a medical leave of absence and the assistant ND left for the top job at a Missouri station

The move is said to have come from his desire to be closer to family in California.

Or maybe to get away from Sinclair. *wink wink*

He will begin May 1.
