December 4, 2011 GMT

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Garrison Keillor says he’s reconsidering thoughts about retirement.

The host of public radio’s “A Prairie Home Companion” told the Sioux City Journal this week that he thought about quitting the show, but it panicked him and led to him “rethinking the whole brilliant idea.”

He said the show is going well and he loves doing it, so why quit.

In March, Keillor had said in an interview for the AARP Bulletin that he planned to retire in the spring of 2013, but would have to find his replacement first.

Keillor’s spokesman, David O’Neill, confirmed the report to the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, saying Keillor doesn’t have any specific plans to retire and is still enjoying doing the show.
