Southern Cross Austereo/Sydney DJ Mel Greig will reportedly return to work at 2DayFM after being taken off the air over the royal prank call that had tragic consequences. Greig confirmed her return to parent News Limited but didn’t say what her role would be.
“Someone from the station will be in contact with News Limited when I return,” Greig told a reporter. “I’m not supposed to say anything. I’m so sorry.”
Her former on-air partner Michael Christian quietly returned to the airwaves last month. He’s presenting the 10am to noon shift on the Southern Cross Austereo station FoxFM.
Greig and Christian’s now-infamous phone prank had them put through to the hospital ward where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for morning sickness after pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles. Christian’s voice was heard on Fox FM but he did not identify himself.
The Australian pair’s show on Southern Cross Austereo’s 2Day FM show was pulled after Saldanha, who put the call through at Kind Edward VII Hospital, committed suicide after being chided for the mistake.
