- Hosted by Chris Thile
A Prairie Home Companion is a live radio variety show now hosted by Chris Thile.
The new chapter of this listener favorite features both well-known and up-and-coming musical talent, humor with sketch comedy and spoken word, and a funny Song of the Week.
It is produced by Prairie Home Productions and distributed by American Public Media.
A Prairie Home Companion has a long history since original host Garrison Keillor created the show in 1974. The show is primarily recorded at the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul, MN, although it is frequently taken on the road. The show's name is borrowed from a 1969 program, and is an homage to the Prairie Home Cemetery in Moorhead, MN next to Concordia College.
