Popular NPR Radio Host Garrison Keillor Fired for Inappropriate Behavior
Garrison Keillor was fired from Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) after allegations arose about “inappropriate” conduct while he was hosting the popular show “Prairie Home Companion,” which aired on National Public Radio (NPR).
The Associated Press wrote that a letter was made public about Keillor’s termination.
The inappropriate behavior allegedly happened with a coworker during his popular national show, according to the letter from MPR posted on Twitter. The company hired a law firm to conduct an investigation prior to his termination.
They will no longer rebroadcast episodes of “Prairie Home Companion” featuring Keillor, will change the show's name, end airing his syndicated show "The Writer's Almanac" and end their business ties with his online retail store.
