Brian Lamb To Step Down As C-SPAN CEO
Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain will succeed C-SPAN’s founder.
Effective April 1, they will become the co-chief executives of C-Span and Mr. Lamb will become the executive chairman, formalizing a management change that has been years in the making. Mr. Lamb will continue to host “Q&A,” his Sunday night interview program, and will pursue other interests, like teaching.
The announcement will come on Monday, 33 years to the day that C-Span — short for Cable-Satellite Public Affairs Netork — came onto cable television, predating CNN and ESPN.
