Don Swaim (born 1936) is an American journalist and broadcaster.

Born in Kansas, Swaim earned a degree in broadcast journalism from Ohio University and worked as editor, writer, producer, reporter and anchor at WCBS (AM) in New York and CBS in Baltimore.

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.

Swaim currently resides in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He is married to Elizabeth Joyce Swaim. He chairs the Bucks County Writers Workshop.
