Kate Middleton - Kate Middleton Prank Call Update: SCA on Damage Control

The two DJ’s, who pranked a nurse into revealing details about Kate Middleton’s condition have been sanctioned and Southern Cross Austereo, the company behind the offending radio show, has reported that it is taking comprehensive action to prevent anything like this from happening again. The sanctions include the termination of 2Day FM’s Hot 30 show, the suspension of all advertising on 2Day FM, a company-wide suspension of prank calls, as well as a review of company policies. Whether that will be enough to clear SCA’s reputation remains to be seen.

SCA have also expressed their condolences for those affected by Jacintha Saldanha’s death. The nurse committed suicide shortly after the scandal broke and, regardless of whether the tragedy had anything to do with the nurse being fooled by the DJ’s, her death sheds an eerie light over the entire scandal and the fallout might be hard for the company to control.

According to a statement issued by Rhys Holleran, the CEO of Southern Cross Austereo, has stated that the company is “providing support to our people who are deeply saddened by this tragic and unforseen event”. Exactly who those people are is unclear, since, according to TMZ, before the suspension, the DJs were heard bragging about the prank.
