Time: Garrison Keillor to Say So Long to Lake Wobegon
Garrison Keillor, the creator and host of A Prairie Home Companion, says he is retiring next year.
Keillor has hinted at retirement before, but this time he’s serious, the Associated Press reports. He has set up sometime-guest host Chris Thile to take over as host after Keillor’s last show in July 2016. Thile, who is a member of the bands Punch Brothers and Nickel Creek, will carry on the show’s musical heritage.
