FORT WORTH (AP) – Daystar, a Christian TV network founded by the Rev. Marcus Lamb and his wife Joni, is downsizing four months after the couple revealed they were healing from an extramarital affair he had years ago.

Daystar Television Network spokesman A. Larry Ross says production studios in Houston, Denver and Ashland, Ky., will become transmitter sites operated by a smaller technical staff.

Ross told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the network hopes to achieve operational parity among its 114 TV stations and better use resources at its headquarters in the Fort Worth suburb of Bedford.

Although donations to Daystar are down 7 percent from the same time last year, the ministry says they’re up 5 percent from 2009. Ross says its audience has also grown despite a defamation suit filed against Daystar.
