DALLAS (AP) – Marcus Lamb, CEO and founder of the conservative Christian Daystar Television Network, who was outspoken against COVID-19 vaccines, has died at the age of 64 after contracting the virus.
Daystar confirmed his death Tuesday.
Lamb’s relatives have been talking about his battle with the virus over the past month. His wife, Joni, said he had diabetes and was hospitalized after his oxygen level dropped.
Lamb and Daystar, 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 shown vaccine skeptics and health professionals promoting alternative COVID-19 treatments.
