The Australian radio station hit the news after two of the station's DJs (Michael Christian and Mel Greig) made a prank call to a UK hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was admitted.
The nurse who took the prank call pretending to be the Queen from 2Day FM radio station is believed to have committed suicide due to the effect on her that the prank call had.
In a media release
on 11 December, Southern Cross Austereo, which owns 2Day FM, announced “All profits from advertising on 2Day FM until the end of the year will be donated to an appropriate fund that will directly benefit the family of Jacintha Saldanha. A minimum contribution of AUD$500,000 will be made.
