MPR Reaches Agreement with Garrison Keillor to Restore Public Access to Online Archives
Minnesota Public Radio has reached an agreement with Garrison Keillor to restore free public access to the online archives of A Prairie Home Companion and The Writer’s Almanac. Later this month, past performances of these popular shows will be returned to their respective websites: prairiehome.org and writersalmanac.org. MPR will pay $275,000 for Mr. Keillor’s rights related to these historic archives and to resolve all other matters.
“These archives feature the work of thousands of talented artists, poets and musicians,” said Jon McTaggart, president and CEO of Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media Group. “We are pleased that these performances will once again be available to fans of these programs.”
