Radio personality Garrison Keillor told AARP Bulletin that he plans to retire in 2013, with one caveat — first he must find a replacement host for his show A Prairie Home Companion:
In an interview with the Bulletin’sonline books column, The Author Speaks, Keillor discussed his latest project, an anthology of poems titledGood Poems: American Places, elaborated on his love of poetry, his impressions of America, his legacy, dreams for the future — and on his views on stepping down from the limelight.
“When I was younger, I was all in favor of it, and now that I’m at that age, I’m not sure,” he explained. “I sure don’t want to make a fool of myself and be singing romantic duets with 25-year-old women when I’m 75. But on the other hand, it’s so much fun. And in radio, the lighting is right.”
