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.
