If Washington had a sidewalk of stars, C-SPAN Founder and CEO Brian Lamb would surely be on it. He has won the University of Oklahoma‚Äôs prestigious Gaylord Prize for Excellence in Journalism. He’s the third person to win the award.

Lamb will accept the prize and speak at a luncheon on Nov. 8 in Oklahoma City. OU President David Boren, who served 16 years in the Senate, backed Lamb for the Gaylord Prize in recognition of “his achievement in founding and leading C-SPAN as the first 24-hour network covering Congressional proceedings.”

Congratulations to Lamb.
