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.

I’m pleased that our Board has given their partnership its unanimous endorsement.”
