Garrison Keillor, the public radio icon, has suffered a minor stroke, according to an Associated Press report.
The 67-year old Keillor, whose Prairie Home Companion radio show has been one of public radio's most popular offerings for decades, suffered the stroke Sunday.
An AP excerpt:
A Mayo Clinic spokesman says Keillor suffered the stroke Sunday morning. Keillor is at Saint Marys Hospital on the Mayo campus in Rochester.
Mayo spokesman Karl Oestreich (ACE'-strike) said Keillor was moving around and working on a laptop Wednesday. Oestreich said Keillor should be released on Friday and resume a normal schedule next week.
We at NPR News, like his millions of fans, wish him a speedy recovery.
