Victims are coming forward, the fallout is significant.
"MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Garrison Keillor, the former host of 'A Prairie Home Companion,' said Wednesday he has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over allegations of improper behavior.
Keillor told The Associated Press of his firing in an email. In a follow-up statement, he said he was fired over 'a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard.' He didn't give details of the allegation.
Minnesota Public Radio didn't immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
Keillor, 75, retired as host of his long-running public radio variety show in 2016. His hand-picked successor, mandolinist Chris Thile, is in his second season as 'Prairie Home' host." AP
As we were posting the story about Garrison, this came through the wire:
"The Flash and Supergirl producers Warner Bros. Television has cut all ties with Andrew Kreisberg following sexual-harassment claims from multiple women involving the showrunner.
Kreisberg, who exec produced The CW's DC Comics-inspired dramas Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, was suspended by WBTV weeks ago following multiple allegations of sexual harassment. The studio launched an internal investigation in to the allegations. Kreisberg has now been terminated from all four series as well as CW Seed's Vixen and has lost his overall deal with the studio. (Sources say Kreisberg was also developing another show with Berlanti, with that now up in the air.)" The Hollywood Reporter
