Radio Hosts Michael Christian And Mel Greig Remain Employed By 2Day FM

Royal Prank Call DJ’s Radio Show Cancelled After Nurse Suicide

The 2Day FM radio show presented by the two Australian DJ’s who hoax called the hospital where Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was being treated for acute morning sickness has been cancelled. A new show hosted by a different presenter will fill the same time slot.

2Day FM DJ’s, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, will remain employed by the radio station present, although for the moment they are still on leave, The Guardian reports.

Parent company, Southern Cross Austereo, which owns 2Day FM, released a statement via its chief executive, Rhys Holleran, saying:

“We look forward to Mel and Michael returning to work when the time is right, in roles that make full use of their talents – we will discuss future roles with them when they are ready.”

On December 4, Greig and Christian telephoned the Edward VII hospital where Kate was being treated for acute morning sickness.

During that call, in which the duo impersonated the Queen and Prince Charles, and they initially spoke to Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, 46, who transferred the call to the Duchess’ room on the ward.

As a result, details about Kate’s medical condition were divulged to the two DJ’s live and on-air by a second, unnamed nurse.
