Kubitz had been CBS' senior VP of program planning & scheduling since 2010. He replaces Jeff Bader, who left to head up scheduling for NBC. Kubitz will be responsible for daytime, primetime and late-night program planning and scheduling, as well as film acquisition and theatrical inventory.
"Andy's appointment brings a fresh perspective and a strategic sensibility to our planning and scheduling efforts, joining a team that is second to none in our industry," said ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee. "Together, I'm confident they will help us take ABC to a whole new level."
Kubitz added: "I'm looking forward to joining the ABC Entertainment team. The network's amazing programming and innovative approach to storytelling is exciting for viewers, myself included. It's a thrill to participate in the creative process in an effort to better position the signature programming that so many hold near and dear to their hearts."
