The pair has been given counseling to help cope with the situation.

The 2DAY FM announcers at the centre of the Kate Middleton prank call have broken their silence. Mel Greig and Michael Christian said there was no malice intended with the call. Howard Sattler spoke with the Daily Telegraph opinion writer Miranda Devine and A Current Affair Executive Producer Grant Williams.

  • This is a terrible situation and whilst their prank call may have been a contributing factor, in reality we don't know what other issues the Nurse had in her life. This may have been the straw that broke the camels back. Perhaps if the prank call hadn't happened she may still have committed suicide next week when another issue in her life arose.

    Having recently been through the suicide of a family member I can feel for the family, they have a tough time ahead.

  • Heavy penalty should be applied. Media industry should be properly regulated and monitored. UK's media ugly truth should be learned by Australian. Saying sorry is not enough and this should be warned to all type of media industry. Self-centered expectation and un-controlled action without self awareness are childish and should not be allowed and encouraged by no legal restrain. No self-control and self-awareness GUILTY infants.
