He was an American radio personality. After a stint at the University of Minnesota where he was a standout baseball player, Keith joined the Marines. Keith said he had papers to go to Vietnam, but another Marine who hadn't been tapped to go offered to trade assignments. Keith accepted, and in 1973 he was out of the military and looking for a job. He began his career in radio working as the engineer for Garrison Keillor's morning show in the '70s.
Keillor was responsible for creating Keith's alter-ego, Jim Ed Poole, and he continued to develop the character after Keillor left the morning show to pursue A Prairie Home Companion full-time and MPR brought in new Morning Show co-host Dale Connelly. He worked at Minnesota Public Radiofor 25 years.
