Brian Lamb   Bresnan Award Honoree 2013

Executive Chairman of C-SPAN Networks

Brian Lamb



Brian Lamb is Executive Chairman of C-SPAN Networks and has been a part of the public affairs channel since he helped the cable industry launch it 34 years ago.

In the 1970’s, Lamb covered telecommunications issues as Washington bureau chief for Cablevision Magazine. It was from this vantage point that C-SPAN took shape.  Congress was about to televise its proceedings; the cable industry was looking for programming to deliver to its customers by satellite.  Lamb brought these two ideas together with C-SPAN, which launched with the first televised House of Representatives debate on March 19, 1979.

Lamb has been a regular on-air presence at C-SPAN and has interviewed Presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama and many world leaders including Margaret Thatcher and Mikhail Gorbachev.
