ABC (NYSE: DIS) News alum Jon Dube, who rejoined in 2008 to head ABCNews.com, is leaving the network again. Turns out Dube took the buyout offered as part of the major buyout that reshaped ABC News, slashing the workforce by roughly one third. Instead, Andrew Morse will manage ABCNews.com and ABC News Now as Executive Producer of Integration and Innovation, according to the memo from ABC News Digital SVP Paul Slavin (included below). Ed O’Keefe is promoted to Executive Producer of ABCNews.com. At the same time, Elizabeth Barrett has been promoted to VP-Mobile, Broadband, and Operations for ABC News Digital, reporting to Slavin.
