A&E Networks Shuffles Top Executive Lineup

Jun 3, 2013  •  Post A Comment

A&E Networks has made a number of management changes, as newly installed Chief Executive Nancy Dubuc sets up her team of top execs.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that three executive VP/general managers have been named: Dirk Hoogstra, at History/H2; David McKillop, at A&E; and Rob Sharenow, at Lifetime.

“In her bid to ramp up internally, Dubuc has moved former A&E honcho Bob DeBitetto to president of brand strategy and business development at newly launched in-house A+E Studios,” the report notes.

Additionally, Jana Bennett is joining the company as president of Bio and LMN.

In a statement today announcing the moves, Dubuc said: “At A+E Networks, we have created an amazing culture that is focused on creativity and innovation, and this has driven unprecedented success. We have the top brands that appeal to men, women and adults and we have strong brands in our emerging networks. With the ramp-up and realignment of our programming groups, A+E Networks is well positioned to reach even greater heights.”

  1. I thought A&E meant Arts and Entertainment. So what did you do with H2? The new channel viceland sucks. Do you hear me? I pretty much have no reason after the news is over to leave my tv on anymore. H2 was my one place to go when there wasn’t anything else on worth watching. Now you’ve dumped it to some new brand that apparently will pander to druggies, gays, and gansta rappers. Good going A&E. Now you suck too!
