Michael Christian, one of the Australian radio presenters behind the hoax phone call to the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated has returned to the airwaves, according to The Times.

Christian is now presenting a morning show on a Melbourne radio station, however the radio station has yet to officially name him as the presenter of the programme.

A hospital nurse apparently killed herself in December after the hoax phone call which was made by Christian and on air partner Mel Greig.

The pair both resigned from 2Day FM over the death.
