DALLAS – Marcus Lamb, CEO and founder of the conservative Christian Daystar Television Network, which was outspoken against COVID-19 vaccines, has died at the age of 64 after contracting the virus.

Daystar confirmed his death on Tuesday.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Marcus Lamb, President and Founder of the Daystar Television Network, went home to be with the Lord this morning,” the network said in a tweet on Tuesday. “The family asks that their privacy be respected while mourning this difficult loss. Please continue to lift them up in prayer.”

Lamb’s relatives have been talking for the past month about his battle with the virus. His wife, Joni, said he had diabetes and was hospitalized after his oxygen levels 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 healthcare professionals promoting alternative COVID-19 treatments.

It is unclear whether Lamb received a covid-19 vaccine.

In recent months, a number of prominent anti-vaccination Christian broadcasters have died from COVID-19. Unvaccinated radio hosts Dick Farrell, Phil Valentine and Marc Bernier all died after contracting the virus.
