Nancy Dubuc has been named chief executive of Vice Media, the millennial-focused digital content company. Vice announced the appointment Tuesday, a day after Dubuc said she was leaving her role as chief of A&E Networks.

Dubuc is succeeding Shane Smith, Vice’s founder, who will become executive chairman of the Brooklyn, N.Y-based outfit that specializes in programming that targets 18- to 34-year-olds.

In a statement, Smith said his new position will enable him to “concentrate on the only things I’m good at — content and deals.”

Smith added that bringing Dubuc into the company is the result of a need at Vice for a “best-in-class management team to harness all of this growth and control our destiny.”

Dubuc has spent 20 years at A&E Networks. A&E Networks owners the Walt Disney Co. and Hearst announced Monday that Abbe Raven, who ran the group of cable networks for 33 years, is taking over as chairman in an interim capacity until a permanent successor to Dubuc is named.

Vice has been considered a candidate for a corporate makeover since being rocked by reports in December of systemic sexual harassment and having a culture that is not hospitable to women.
