The Royal hoaxers attempted to contact King Edward VII's Hospital five times to discuss their recorded prank call before putting it out on air, the head of the board that owns the Australian station has said.
Rhys Holleran, the CEO of 2Day FM's parent company, Southern Cross Austereo, made the claim in an interview on Melbourne radio station 3AW:
An inquest has heard that the nurse who transferred a prank call about the Duchess of Cambridge was found hanging in her nurses' quarters.
Jacintha Saldanha's colleagues discovered her hanged in her room in the King Edward VII's Hospital nursing quarters, her inquest has heard.
The family of Jacintha Saldanha say they miss her 'every moment', as Australian hoax DJs say they are 'heartbroken' at her death.
