(AP) -- C-SPAN says Brian Lamb, who helped start the public-affairs cable network in 1978 and has been its CEO ever since, will step down at the end of the month.
The nonprofit network said Sunday that Lamb is handing over leadership to two co-CEOs, Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain. Lamb will remain chairman of the board, with the new title of executive chairman.
C-SPAN said the leadership transition has been years in the making. Kennedy and Swain have been co-presidents of the company since 2006.
