Women in Television: Nancy Dubuc

Nov 16, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Who: Nancy Dubuc, general manager, History

Women in TV

Why: Life is good for Ms. Dubuc: History expects to finish with its best year ever, having already recorded four best quarters in a row and 10 of 12 best months. Ratings are higher, particularly among younger viewers, than the network has enjoyed before. Since she was put in charge of History almost two years ago, the results so far have demonstrated that her high expectations to create more appointment television are credible. Indeed, “I’ve raised the bar on my team,” Ms. Dubuc said. “We’ve just hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of reaching our potential in terms of series. We’ve hit the ball out of the park on a few series. That proves we can do it.”

What: What do you do for an encore after “Ice Road Truckers” and “Ax Men”? History is putting a lot of its chips on “Expedition: Africa,” a new series from “Survivor” producer Mark Burnett that follows four survivalists trying to retrace explorer Henry Morton Stanley’s path through Africa. Judging from the dailies, the show—History’s most expensive ever—“looks majestic. It looks intense. It’s got all the drama and excitement we’re hoping for,” Ms. Dubuc said.

The network also will be commemorating the 40th anniversary of 1969, which brought us men on the moon, Woodstock and the sexual revolution. “What better time to be the History channel than when our country is making history every day?” she added.

  1. Hi there, I found your blog via Google your post looks very interesting for me.

  2. Thank you for this great article, I really enjoy your blog layout.

  3. I am typically an excellent analyzer but in this article I’m in all praises.

  4. More than 6,697,254,041 homo sapiens on our earth, seventy five percent have read the bible. One human preaching in just one country, started that, using word of mouth. People today have the world wide web with which to reach all of those people, all this at your fingertips, you can change anything, go for it bad boys!!!!!!

  5. Approximately 6 million persons inhabit the world, seventy five percent have read the bible. One dude preaching in one single country, set up it, using word of mouth. Internet users have the internet with which to reach all of those people, all this at your fingertips, you can change anything, go for it bad boys!!!!!!

  6. Wonderful to read!

  7. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  8. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers,

  9. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  20. Great thanks to your info but I am acquiring issues with images on your site.

  21. Kudos to you! This is a really good blog here and I love your style of writing. How did you get so good at blogging?

  22. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
