Garrison Keillor creator and host of"A Prairie Home Companion" appears during an interview in St. Paul Minn. The president of Minnesota Public Radio has told employees the decision to cut business ties with

Jon McTaggart, CEO of MPR's parent company American Public Media Group, addressed the issue at an employee meeting Wednesday.

Because the meeting was declared off the record, journalists covering the Keillor story for MPR News did not attend. APMG spokesperson Angie Andresen said the company did not plan to issue a statement about the meeting. He reportedly said that the decision to withhold further comment was his alone, and not based on any legal advice.

Keillor announced November 30 that MPR had terminated his contracts after four decades of entertaining public radio listeners with tales of small-town characters.

Keillor has said he touched a woman's bare back to console her, and that he apologized.

Minnesota Public Radio insists it "carefully investigated" complaints from two people of "inappropriate behavior" by Garrison Keillor before it terminated its contracts with the creator of "A Prairie Home Companion".

Keillor, who retired as host of the show in 2016, told the AP Wednesday night that MPR shouldn't have dismissed him without a "full and fair investigation".

"We are aware of allegations against Mr. Keillor by only one individual", Nilsson said.

Keillor told the Associated Press in an email later Wednesday that he was not at the meeting hosted by McTaggart, so he couldn't provide details of what was said. Nilsson says that the former "A Prairie Home Companion" host wants a swift resolution with MPR and "expects a full restoration of his reputation".

"A Prairie Home Companion" continues with Keillor's hand-picked successor, mandolinist Chris Thile.
