C-SPAN boss Brian Lamb marries
New York Daily News Lowdown by Lloyd Grove ^ | 09/26/2005 | Lloyd Grove

SECURITY CLEARANCE is what you apparently needed to attend the secret wedding last week of C-SPAN impresario Brian Lamb, a lifelong bachelor at age 63, to a hometown friend from Lafayette, Ind., known only as Victoria. "They were married in a small, private ceremony in the Washington area," a C-SPAN spokeswoman said mysteriously, "and Brian was in the office all week." Surely that's the kind of response that would prompt the deceptively soft-spoken Lamb - in one of his trademark interviews with a politician - to demand answer after answer. Anyhow, congratulations, Brian!

He gets married now, at 63?

Why?

I thought they were going to wait a spell before they raised a family?

"Lifelong friend" implies she is rather long in the tooth as well.

Of course, they can always buy an egg.

Would be hilarious if he got some 25 year old babe to marry him. That he's really a party animal

Maybe he had to make an honest woman of her.

Anyway, congratulations to a man who has given me countless hours of education and pleasure. Perhaps unwittingly, Brian Lamb has done more to damage the left than any other reporter I can identify.

And he got the left to pay for it too.

Brian Lamb, my hero. Er, after the G'nrl, of course.

Best wishes to Brian Lamb.......I make it a point to watch Friday's Washington Journal broadcast mainly because he hosts it. Kudos to a great and an unbiased reporter.

Yes, he is shockingly unbiased. I can't think of any other reporter who is.

I've been watching him for years and haven't a clue as to his politics.

One of the best interviewers there's ever been. And I've wondered once or twice which team he plays for. I suppose this shows it's ours.

An interview in Reason magazine a few years ago indicated to me he's somewhat libertarian. But he's such a pro that you really had to read carefully to pick that up; he's the model for what allegedly-unbiased reporters should strive to be.

He was a Republican 30 years ago although I am sure he is registered independent since C-SPAN.

He worked for a Republican senator and was on the transition team when Gerald Ford became President in 1974.

Maybe he doesn't want to be alone anymore? Hmm?

It took him 63 years to figure that out?

My 56 year old cousin got married (his first) two weeks ago to his best friend of 30 years. He was best man at her first wedding, that's how they met. It was the sweetest thing I've ever seen.

In an interview within the last year (can't recall where it was), Brian Lamb said that his name has never once been uttered on C-SPAN.

Hard to believe, but I'm 95 percent sure that's what he said.

Life-long bachelor I guess is OK.

Confirmed bachelor, then I'd worry.

Yeah, best wishes and all, etcetera....

But, you know...

If I had never married, my apartment would look like an effing swamp after 63 years.
