Ex-radio host Keillor gives 1st show in Ariz. after firing

Posted: Updated:

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Former radio host Garrison Keillor gave his first show after being fired by Minnesota Public Radio amid charges of sexual harassment, appearing before hundreds of fans in central Arizona.
    
Keillor sang and told a few personal stories Wednesday at Yavapai College in Prescott.
    
The Daily Courier newspaper in Prescott reported the ex-host of the once popular "A Prairie Home Companion" joked about how the allegations must have been contagious, considering his connections to others with scandals surrounding them, including Al Franken, Charlie Rose and Harvey Weinstein.
    
Keillor told the newspaper after his appearance that the charges emerged from an adolescent type of flirtation.
    
Minnesota Public Radio announced in November it would stop distributing Keillor's program "The Writer's Almanac" and would no longer rebroadcast "The Best of A Prairie Home Companion."
