Co-founder will remain at the company, wants to focus more on content and strategy

A+E Networks Chief Executive Officer Nancy Dubuc is in advanced talks to become the next chief executive of Vice Media, according to people familiar with the matter, as current CEO Shane Smith looks to step back into more of a content and strategic role.

Ms. Dubuc would take the helm at Vice during a delicate moment for the edgy, youth-focused media company, which apologized in December for running a “boy’s club” after the New York Times reported sexual harassment allegations against some of its executives.
