Statement by Governor Schwarzenegger
Regarding American Media
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today made the following statement:
"For more than 35 years I have had an extraordinarily close personal and business relationship with Weider Publications.
"Given that bodybuilding and fitness have been central to my life I saw no reason to discontinue that relationship when the franchise was sold in 2003.
"When I became Governor I pledged to put the people of California front and center. I don't want there to be any question or doubt that the people have my full devotion.
"Therefore, effective today I will relinquish my title as executive editor and forego any compensation from the magazines. I will continue to promote weight resistance training, health and fitness for all through any avenue that is available to me as I have done my entire life."
