DJ's who Hoaxed Kate Middleton Nurse Keep Jobs

The two radio presenters who hoaxed a hospital into divulging details of  Kate Middleton's condition  - believed to be a contributory factor in the suicide of nurse Jacintha Saldanha - are to keep their jobs, the media company Austereo announced today.

However the breakfast show they were working on has been axed and will be replaced by a show called The Bump. Given that global interest in a baby bump is arguably at the root of all the trouble, the name seems rather odd. But whatever.

Mel Greig and Michael Christian are still on leave. "We look forward to Mel and MC returning to work when the time is right, in roles that make full use of their talents," Austereo chief executive Rhys Holleran said today in a statement.
