'A Prairie Home Companion' Radio Show Renamed 'Live From Here'

“A Prairie Home Companion” radio show has been given a new name — “Live From Here” — in the wake of creator Garrison Keillor’s acrimonious split with Minnesota Public Radio.

Chris Thile, the mandolin virtuoso who has hosted the weekly variety show since Keillor’s retirement last year, announced the new name Saturday evening (Dec. 16) as the show opened a live performance in New York City.

MPR terminated its contracts with Keillor after it said it had received multiple allegations of improper conduct by Keillor.

MPR has declined to give any details except to say the allegations involved treatment of one woman who had worked with Keillor when he was still with the show.

Keillor has said he accidentally touched a woman’s bare back while trying to console her.
