Marcus Lamb, co-founder and CEO of the conservative Christian Daystar Television Network who vocally opposed Covid vaccines, has died at age 64, weeks after contracting Covid-19, according to the network.
“It’s with a heavy heart we announce that Marcus Lamb, president and founder of Daystar Television Network, went home to be with the Lord this morning,” said a tweet Tuesday from the network. “The family asks that their privacy be respected as they grieve this difficult loss. Please continue to lift them up in prayer.”
The Christian broadcaster’s son, Jonathan Lamb, filled in for his father on a Nov. 23 Daystar broadcast and beseeched listeners to pray for his father’s recovery from Covid.

Speaking to viewers from Lamb’s hospital bedside via telephone, Marcus Lamb’s wife, Joni Lamb, said, “With this thing, it’s kind of like riding a roller coaster.”
“It’s like, you’ll just be up and everything’s great, and then you have a little lull, and then you come down low and then you come back up, but from everybody that I talk to — I think that’s the pattern,” she said.
“We can really feel the prayers of the people,” Joni Lamb said, thanking viewers for their prayers.

A minister since his youth, he met his wife, Joni, while preaching at her church. The two were married in 1982 and have three children, Jonathan, Rachel and Rebecca.
In 1985, Marcus and Joni Lamb founded the first dedicated Christian television station in the state of Alabama. After working there for several years, the couple moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area to expand their ministry.

Today Daystar is a global network with a presence in almost every country in the world, thanks in large part to the diligence shown by the Lambs. In addition to his work on Christian television, Marcus Lamb is an in demand minister and conference speaker.
