Nancy Dubuc to run all A+E Networks channels, programming


A+E Networks has promoted Nancy Dubuc to president of entertainment and media in a move that will see her oversee all of the company’s cable networks and its entire programming slate.

The move will now see A&E Networks president Bob DeBitetto and executive vice presidents Dan Suratt and Steve Ronson reporting to Dubuc.

Dubuc’s rise – she started at the company over ten years ago as director of historical programming at History – comes as History has cemented its place as one of the top five cable networks in the US and Lifetime continues to see double digit growth with series including Project Runway All Stars and The Client List.

“Nancy is one of the most dynamic and creative executives working in media today. Having all our global brands and content creation under her purview brings a natural synergy given her track record of success,” said A+E Networks president and CEO Abbe Raven.

Dubuc will also oversee the company’s international and digital divisions; the group has been attempting to launch Lifetime in a number of global markets.
