A+E Networks

2013 has been quite a year for Dubuc. Awarded AETN’s top spot in June, Dubuc wasted no time proving why she deserves the title. Under her guidance, much of television’s “Golden Age” of content has emanated from her networks. A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” set records with its 11.8 million season four premiere, with “Vikings,” “The Bible” and “Bates Motel” smashing ratings records of their own. “The number of new series out there, and the level of quality has really raised the bar for all of us,” says Dubuc. And it’s a height she’s surpassing.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
I am really a programmer at heart so the fact that we get to impact popular culture with great storytelling like A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” History’s “Vikings” and Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” and to see these shows resonate with big audiences, is truly rewarding.
What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?
We’re in the Golden Age of content. Technology has really made the creative process better. The number of new series out there, and the level of quality has really raised the bar for all of us. And now you are seeing great content on multiple platforms, especially on cable, which has been the driving force of innovation and risk-taking.
How do you define success in the workplace?
When people find their jobs rewarding and feel motivated to come to work every day, is truly the definition of success. I am incredibly proud that we have so many passionate employees at A+E Networks.
