Daystar CEO Marcus Lamb dies after COVID diagnosisAssociated Press, DECEMBER 1, 2021 — 6:35PM
DALLAS — Marcus Lamb, CEO and founder of the Daystar Television Network who was outspoken against COVID-19 vaccines, has died at age 64 after contracting the virus. Daystar confirmed his death Tuesday.
The network said in a tweet Tuesday. "The family asks that their privacy be respected as they grieve this difficult loss. Please continue to lift them up in prayer." Lamb and Daystar Television— based in Bedford, Texas, in the Dallas-Fort Worth area — have promoted views opposing COVID-19 vaccines and restrictions to stop the spread of the disease. The network's programs have featured vaccine skeptics and health care professionals who promote alternative COVID-19 treatments.
In recent months, a number of prominent anti-vaccination broadcasters have died from COVID-19. Radio hosts Dick Farrell, Phil Valentine and Marc Bernier, who were unvaccinated, all died after they contracted the virus.
