Australian DJ’s Lose Show Over Prank Call

The prank call that resulted in the suicide of a nurse who transferred the call to the private duty nurse for Kate Middleton has led to the termination of the DJ’s involved.

In their first interviews after their radio stunt caused an international uproar last week, Aussie shock jocks Michael Christian and Mel Greig gave teary-eyed appeals that they never meant to cause harm in a traumatic trick that was merely “designed to be stupid.”

…A shaken Greig said she immediately wanted to know whether Jacintha Saldanha, who was found dead Friday, was a mother. The 46-year-old nurse was a wife and mom of two teenaged children…

“Very sorry and saddened for the family, and I can’t imagine what they’ve been going through,” Greig said in an interview that aired Monday on the TV program “Today Tonight.”

“I’m gutted, shattered, heartbroken,” Christian said, adding, “We’re still trying to get our heads around everything, trying to make sense with the situation.”

Greig said the stunt, in which the pair called the hospital pretending to be Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth inquiring about a pregnant Kate Middleton, was “never meant to go that far.”
