Schwarzenegger to be executive editor of magazines
LOS ANGELES — He was the Terminator, then a governor, and now Arnold Schwarzenegger is an editor.
The Los Angeles Times reports Schwarzenegger has been named executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines.
It's a position that the former Mr. Olympia held briefly 10 years ago, after winning California's gubernatorial recall election. After being criticized for potential conflict of interest, he quit the job.
The Times says Schwarzenegger, who has appeared on the magazines' covers more than 60 times, will contribute columns and other input.
In a statement, Schwarzenegger says it was publications like Muscle & Fitness and Flex that inspired him to start lifting weights.
The magazines are owned by American Media Inc.
