Keil­lor’s suc­ces­sor: Mis­con­duct al­le­ga­tions ‘heart­break­ing’

The Commercial Appeal - - News -

The man who re­placed Gar­ri­son Keil­lor as host of “A Prairie Home Com­pan­ion” says the al­le­ga­tions against Keil­lor came as “heart­break­ing news.”

Chris Thile on Satur­day ad­dressed al­leged im­proper con­duct by Keil­lor in the open­ing min­utes of the first show to be broad­cast since news of the al­le­ga­tions broke. Min­nesota Pub­lic Ra­dio, the par­ent com­pany of the show’s dis­trib­u­tor, ended its re­la­tion­ship with Keil­lor this week af­ter what it said were al­le­ga­tions of im­proper be­hav­ior with a per­son who worked with him on “Prairie Home.” Keil­lor has said that he touched a woman’s bare back as he tried to con­sole her and that he apol­o­gized.
