Australian 2 Day FM Radio Hosts Mel Greig And Michael Christian

Father Of Royal Prank Radio host Mel Greig Targeted In Hate Messages

The father of Mel Greig, one of the besieged 2 Day FM radio hosts, hired a security guard at his home following the royal prank call row.

On December 4, Mel Greig and Michael Christian telephoned King Edward VII hospital where Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for acute morning sickness.

After impersonating the Queen and Prince Charles, Greig and Christian got through to nurse Jacintha Saldanha before they were transferred to a nurse on the Duchess’ ward.

Three days after the hoax call, Mrs. Saldanha was found hanged in staff accommodation near the hospital in what looked like a suicide. The 46-year-old mother of two also had marks on her wrist.

Following news of Mrs. Saldanha’s death, Greig and Christian were widely criticized by King Edward VII hospital, media commentators, and public opinion. Although later suspended, the presenters were provided with access to counseling by 2Day FM’s parent company, Southern Austereo Cross.

After emotional apologies on Australian television, Grieg and Christian were forced to go into hiding after receiving death threats, Australia’s reports.
