C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb is giving up day-to-day oversight of operations. But he will continue to “engage in the overall direction setting” and “plans to continue to host” his weekly interview program, “Q and A.”

In a statement released tonight, C-SPAN’s Board of Directors today announced that on April 1, 2012, C-SPAN co-presidents Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain will become co-CEOs of the public affairs cable TV network. Lamb, who has served as CEO since the company’s founding in 1978 and as chairman of the C-SPAN board since 1985, takes on the new role of Executive Chairman of the C-SPAN Board.
