ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Public Radio says it has an agreement with Garrison Keillor to restore online access to old recordings of his “A Prairie Home Companion” radio show.
MPR said Friday it will pay Keillor $275,000 for limited, non-exclusive rights to those shows for three years as well as Keillor’s “The Writer’s Almanac,” a short daily offering that featured Keillor reading poetry and literary bits.READ MORE: Crews Continue Cleanup After 50-Car Train Derails In Albert Lea
Access to the archival material had been in limbo since MPR cut ties with Keillor over an allegation that he had sexually harassed a woman who worked on his radio show. Keillor has portrayed his relationship with the woman as a mutual flirtation, which she disputes.READ MORE: COVID In MN: 805 New Cases, 10 More Deaths Reported Sunday
