Brian Lamb Stepping Down as C-SPAN’s CEO

Brian Lamb, who has been CEO of C-SPAN since its inception in 1978, is stepping down from the nonprofit cabler, and will be succeeded by co-presidents Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain.

Lamb is giving up day-to-day oversight of the channels but will continue to host “Q and A” and will serve as executive chairman of the C-SPAN board.

In a statement, Lamb said that they have been preparing for the transition “for several years.” It will take effect on April 1. “While each has their areas of expertise, Rob and Susan complement each other professionally. I’m pleased that our Board has given their partnership its unanimous endorsement.”
