The following statement can be attributed to NCTA President & CEO Michael Powell:

“Brian Lamb’s extraordinary impact on the cable industry and American democracy cannot be overstated, and we owe him a debt of gratitude for his innovation, leadership and service.  Brian’s vision for C-SPAN opened our nation’s democratic process to millions of Americans, allowing citizens to become better educated, engaged and aware of how Congress and the federal government operate.  Brian will be missed.  We’re pleased, however, that veteran C-SPAN executives Rob Kennedy and Susan Swain will carry on with his legacy and further burnish C-SPAN as a national treasure.”
