He was 65, according to gomn.com.
Wegner and his program director, Chuck Knapp, went by the morning radio team of “Knapp & Donuts,” which was considered one of the hottest radio shows in the Twin Cities from 1979 to 1994.
In recent years, Wegner lived on a horse farm in Osceola, Wis.
Knapp told the Star Tribune that Wegner was on a computer in the music room at his home Wednesday as his wife went to bed.
Knapp said a few hours later, Wegner’s wife heard an “ominous sound” and went to Wegner’s music room, where she discovered that he had fallen and hit his head on one of the speakers. He was later pronounced dead at the Osceola Medical Center.
WCCO-TV reports that Wegner battled prostate cancer last year, and underwent chemotherapy after having his prostate and bladder removed.
Knapp told the Star Tribune that Wegner wished to be cremated, and that his ashes will eventually be spread over a horse pasture.
