Howard Mortman

C-SPAN
Communications Director


Howard Mortman is Communications Director for C-SPAN, the public service providing television coverage of the U.S. Congress. A veteran of Washington, DC, media organizations, he has observed Congress from positions at MSNBC, National Journal’s Hotline, the Broadcasting Board of Governors, and New Media Strategies. Mortman's first book, When Rabbis Bless Congress: The Great American Story of Jewish Prayers on Capitol Hill, was published in October 2020. It is the first-ever academic and historical examination of a little-known tradition in Congress: opening each session of the House and Senate in prayer. Reporting on the research into rabbis who have prayed in Congress, the Washington Examiner called his project "a remarkable history researched by Howard Mortman."
With a quarter-century of experience, Howard is a seasoned veteran of the Washington media, marketing, and political communities. He graduated from the University of Maryland and has appeared on stage performing stand-up comedy at the DC Improv -- although the two have nothing to do with each other.
