AUSTEREO Top 40 2DAY FM/SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA hosts MEL GRIEG and MICHAEL CHRISTIAN -- the duo behind the KATE MIDDLETON hoax phone call have officially lost their show -- but remain employed by network and "will return to work when time is right," reports THE DAILY MAIL.
GREIG and CHRISTIAN went into hiding after receiving received death threats following the phone call last month to KING EDWARD VII Hospital in LONDON that led to the suicide of JACINTHA SALDANHA, who transferred the call to MIDDLETON's ward.
"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 CEO RHYS HOLLERAN said.
