American broadcaster, talk show host and author. With a soft voice and a slow, sentimental and often sad delivery, his folksy radio humor captured a huge following. His radio shows include "The Prairie Home Morning Show," 1970-74 and "A Prairie Home Companion," 1974-80. From 1980 he has been syndicated nation wide. Keillor is the author of "Happy To Be Here," 1982, "Lake Wobegon Days," 1985 and "Leaving Home," 1987.
Tall and untidy, he married in 1965 to 1970. His one son, Jason, works for the radio show as an adult. In 1985 he made a highly publicized and romantic marriage to Ulla Skaerved whom he called "his true love"; three step-sons and a daughter together. They found each other at their 25th high school reunion where she had been an exchange student the year he was a senior. In spite of his live-in relationship with the producer of his program, they fell in love at first sight and married in Copenhagen.
In 1987 he moved to Denmark, which proved to be too far from his familiar prairie folk, so he returned to the U.S. and radio two years later. In 1991, Skaerved reported to the media that Keillor had left her for another woman.
Keillor's low-key, homespun stories took well to the stage, and in November 1993, he took his show on the road for a 20-city tour in connection with his latest book, "The Book of Guys." He also writes regularly for the New Yorker.
His third wife is violinist Jenny Lind Nilsson; their daughter Maya Grace was born 12/29/1997, New York, NY.
