C-SPAN Cancels Booknotes

by Staff

Brian Lamb, the host of Booknotes, an author interview program on the cable television network C-SPAN, recently announced that the weekly program will cease production in December.

Booknotes was launched in 1989 as a forum for books about history, politics, and public affairs. The program featured interviews with biographers, war correspondents, scholars, and heads of state, including Colin Powell, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, and Henry Louis Gates.

Booknotes will be replaced by Lamb’s new interview program, Q&A, which won’t specialize in authors.
