LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Brian Lamb, who helped found the public-affairs cable network C-SPAN in 1978 and has been its CEO ever since, will step down at the end of the month, C-SPAN said Sunday.

Lamb, 70, will turn the operation over to two co-CEOs, Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain. He will remain chairman of the board and take on the new title of executive chairman, C-SPAN said.

C-SPAN said the leadership transition has been years in the making. Kennedy, 55, and Swain, 57, have been co-presidents of the company since 2006. Swain joined C-SPAN in 1982, and Kennedy joined in 1987.

Washington-based C-SPAN is a nonprofit created and funded by cable and satellite TV companies. It employs 275 people. (Editing by Chris Michaud)
