One Deejay from 'Royal Prank' Back on Air

By February 13, 2013

Follow me on:

Michael Christian - one of the two Australian deejays who staged the now famous Royal Prank - is back on the air. In December, 2012 Christian and Mel Greig masqueraded as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles on the phone and were able to circumvent one nurse to speak with The Duchess of Cambridge's attending nurse. The nurse who put the call through, Jacintha Saldanha, was found dead three days later. The deejays suffered serious criticism and global outrage, many blaming them for her death.

Christian is back on the air with Fox FM in Melbourne. Rhys Holleran, head of Austereo (parent company of Fox FM) said of Grieg: "We look forward to welcoming Mel Greig back when the time is right," reports theaustralian.com.
