President Zhang Dangi, Aning Dangi, who created a deep bench of ethnic diversity in the network's programs and shot Rosean Bar on a racist shriek, will continue to decline.
The decision announced Friday that it was coming with ABC's Walt Disney subsidiary, pending the acquisition of "21st Century Fox" and the "planned organization" of Disney television units.
Dangy, who became the first Afro-American programming manager for a large broadcast network when she was named in February 2016, will be replaced by Cary Burke, head of programming development at ABC. .
Dungey will remain during the transition period as Burke takes over.
Burke's resume includes overseeing the production of NBC series, including "ER" and "West Wing" between 1999 and 2003, during which she developed Scrubs, Freaks and Geeks and other shows.
In a statement, Dangi said she could call ABC home for many more years, but wanted to face new challenges, unspecified.
Under Dangie, both as president and in her previous job as head of ABC's drama development, the network has become the home of a "scandal," "how to get away with murder," and other multi-religious views from African-American producer Shonda Reims.
But Reims, whose programs hold the ABC schedule on Thursday, and another prominent producer, Ken Baris from the Black-Ish sitcom of the network sitcom, jumped on the ship for profitable flow transactions.
Recently, Dengi made news of her fast-paced conservation action from her new show "Rosean," after the comedian showed an insulting peep at former US presidential adviser Valerie Jr. Art, who is African-American. Bar apologized, but the show, which was an immediate success for ABC, was remodeled without it and first appeared this fall as a "Concession".
In October, Disney said it was bringing Walden to CEO Fox as chairman of Disney TV Studios and ABC Entertainment.
Burke will report to Walden after the completion of Fox's acquisition, with Burke replacing at Freeform being announced, ABC said.
In a statement, Disney CEO Bob Eiger praised Dangi for "her curiosity, passion and creativity" and predicted she would succeed in whatever she chose.
Burke, a graduate of the University of California Los Angeles, said she was honored to continue the Dangi legacy of "an excellent storytelling that touches so many people." NVG
