ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – Radio host Garrison Keillor will be turning off the microphone and retiring in 2013.

Keillor, the host of A Prairie Home Companion, told AARP Bulletin that he plans to retire in spring 2013 but first, he says, he needs to find a replacement.

“I am planning to retire in the spring of 2013, but first I have to find my replacement. I’m pushing forward and also I’m in denial. It’s an interesting time of life,” Keillor told AARP Bulletin.

A Prairie Home Companion first aired July 6, 1974, at the Janet Wallace Auditorium at Macalester College in St. Paul.

Now the show can be heard by more than 4 million listeners each week on 590 public radio stations.
