Dubuc, who had been in charge of History and Lifetime at A+E, will now oversee all content creation, brand development, and marketing for all of A+E Networks' channels and oversee the company's international and digital divisions.
Dubuc will report to A+E CEO Abbe Raven, and will have A&E Network president Bob DeBitetto, executive VP Dan Suratt and executive VP Steve Ronson reporting to her. The changes take effect immediately.
"A+E Networks is a leading global media company whose primary product is content," Raven said in a statement. "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."
Since being put in charge in 2007, Dubuc has turned History into a favorite with young men and turned it into a top five cable networks in nearly every demo. History's Hatfields & McCoys set viewership record for cable with more than 62 million viewer tuning in over the mini-series' three nights.
After Lifetime was made a part of A+E, Dubuc was put in charge of the women's network in 2010 and has helped it make a comeback, with shows like Dance Moms and The Client List.
"A+E Networks has been my home for over a decade," said Dubuc. "I am so proud of these brands and my A+E colleagues who are truly the best in the business. I look forward to this next chapter working with Abbe and leading the network teams to new heights, expanding our global footprint and increasing our digital content offerings."
