Don Swaim (born 1936) is an American journalist and broadcaster.
His radio program on books and authors, Book Beat, was nationally syndicated by the CBS Radio Stations News Service. On that program, he interviewed hundreds of major authors of the 1980s, including several Pulitzer Prize winners. While the CBS interviews were cut down to two minutes or less, nearly 700 uncut versions of these interviews are now available at Wired for Books in their entirety, usually 20–40 minutes long.
Don Swaim authors and collects information nationwide from CBS New Radio 88 employees, past and present, to manage the history, photos, and memories of CBS, spanning back fifty years. Many employees, past and present, help him gather and post this valued and well presented information.
