Jenny Lind Nilsson, Garrison Keillor’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know


Radio host and author Garrison Keillor, most known for A Prairie Home Companion, has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio because of allegations of his inappropriate behavior with an individual who previously worked with him. In an official statement released by Minnesota Public Radio, it states, “Last month, MPR was notified of the allegations which relate to Mr. Keillor’s conduct while he was responsible for the production of A Prairie Home Companion (APHC) … The attorney leading the independent investigation has been conducting interviews and reviewing documents, and the investigation is still ongoing … MPR will end its business relationships with Mr. Keillor’s media companies effective immediately.” Jon McTaggart, the President of MPR, gave his own thoughts in the press release, saying that, “Garrison Keillor has been an important part of the growth and success of MPR, and all of us in the MPR community are saddened by these circumstances. While we appreciate the contributions Garrison has made to MPR and to all of public radio, we believe this decision is the right thing to do and is necessary to continue to earn the trust of our audiences, employees and supporters of our public service.”

In addition, David Murphy, the Chair of the MPR Board of Trustees, said, “The Board Committee concluded that terminating the Keillor relationships was the appropriate decision and the Board and Jon are aligned in this action. Fortunately, MPR is one of the strongest public broadcasting organizations in the country.” According to USA Today, Keillor’s response to the termination was explained in an email to the Associated Press as being caused by, “a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard.”

Keillor, 75, is a married man with two children. Get to know more about the family who is dealing with this news and his wife Jenny Lind Nilsson.
