Tony Swan Sends Us to School Regarding Car and Driver Changes

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

We just heard from Tony Swan over at C/D regarding the reduction of his role at the mag, which we reported on a couple of days back, mentioning that per Autoextremist, he was being pushed into early retirement. Swan replies:

Since you apparently picked up the Auto Extremist rant without bothering to check for accuracy, let me correct you on a detail or two. 1. I am not retiring. I plan to remain on the Car and Driver staff as a senior editor. 2. I was not pushed. As with John Phillips a few years back, I am merely stepping aside as exec. This move has been in the works for months. Thanks, Tony Swan

So there you have it, kids. Regardless of Swan/Csere/Hachette's motivations regarding his change in roles at the magazine, though, it's still somewhat of a dire time for American automotive print publishing. Thanks for the heads-up, Tony.
