Marcus Lamb, who founded the Texas-based Christian TV channel Daystar, died of complications from Covid on Tuesday. He was 64 and his death was confirmed by his wife, Joni Lamb, on a show they co-hosted on the network.

Lamb was an outspoken critic of coronavirus vaccines and advised against inoculations. However, his wife told a broadcast that he was taken to hospital on November 18 after contracting the virus.

Daystar Television Network was founded by the Lambs in 1997. Marcus Lamb was the network’s CEO and hosted his own show, as well as ministry now with his wife. Her entire family appeared frequently on the network, which reportedly reached more than 108 million households.

Marcus Daron Lamb was born on October 7, 1957 in Cordele, Georgia. He became an evangelist at age 15 and later graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. Lamb founded the Word of God Fellowship in Macon in 1981, which became an itinerant ministry.

He then started a Christian television station in Montgomery, Alabama, and another in Dallas before founding Daystar, according to his company bio.

Survivors include his wife; one son, Jonathan; and two daughters, Rachel Lamb Brown and Rebecca Lamb Weiss. No memorial project has been unveiled.
