Mel Greig & MC appear on television show

Michael Christian and Mel Greig have spoken about their reaction to hearing the news of the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

The two presenters were both clearly devastated, openly in tears during portions of the interview. Speaking of the prank’s genesis, Michael told Channel 9’s Tracy Grimshaw:

“It was just the team sitting down before the show. That we thought about making a call it was going to go for 30 seconds we were going to be hung up on, and that was it. As innocent as that.”

A Current Affair will run the 15 minute interview unedited but here is a clip of the show:

Pictured below are the pair, on set at the ‘Today Tonight’ interview with Clare Brady.

Yesterday, CEO of Southern Cross Austereo, Rhys Holleran, has appeared on Neil Mitchell’s 3AW program.

While Holleran stayed on message, repeating numerous times “this is a tragic event that could not have been reasonably foreseen”, he did reveal that 2Day FM tried to contact the nurses on “no less than 5 occasions” to discuss what was recorded before airing the prank call.
