Jon McTaggart, CEO of MPR's parent company American Public Media Group, addressed the issue at an employee meeting Wednesday. MPR has not provided details of the allegations.
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The president of Minnesota Public Radio told employees the decision to dismiss Garrison Keillor resulted from "multiple allegations" covering an extended period of time, but an attorney for the former "A Prairie Home Companion" host disputed that characterization and said the humorist wants MPR to "set the record straight". APMG spokesperson Angie Andresen said the company did not plan to issue a statement about the meeting.
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 didn't provide details to the Associated Press but later told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he had put his hand on a woman's bare back when trying to console her.
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".

In an email late Wednesday, Keillor told the Associated Press MPR has made an "enormous mistake.by not conducting a full and fair investigation".
Keillor's attorney, Eric Nilsson, said Thursday that he knows of only one person making allegations against Keillor.
Keillor wants a swift resolution of the matter and "with it expects a full restoration of his reputation", Nilsson said.
