Longtime public radio host Garrison Keillor will not be performing in Buffalo on Sunday, after he was fired by Minnesota Public Radio for allegations of inappropriate behavior.

 

Keillor was set to perform at Asbury Hall at Babeville on Sunday night with Robin and Linda Williams. Organizers of the event tell 7 Eyewitness News that the show has now been cancelled. 

 

Keillor announced Wednesday he’d been fired.  He was perhaps best known for his popular long-running show "A Prairie Home Companion".

 

Minnesota Public Radio declined to give any detail of the allegation against Keillor, but the radio host says he was fired because he put his hand on a woman’s back to console her.  Keillor wrote that the woman’s shirt was open and his hand went up it "about six inches", according to the Associated Press.

 

Refunds for the show can be made at point of purchase.
