The Australian radio show that may have caused the suicide of a British nurse who passed on a prank call to Kate Middleton has been pulled off the air.
2Day FM's Kyle and Jackie O show was cancelled effective immediately, with station management taking the extra step of banning prank calls from its airwaves and "undertaking a rigorous internal investigation" into the events that led to the suicide of Jacinta Saldanha.
TMZ notes that the show and station have a long history of pranks gone wrong, including one that involved a 911 call leading to a police investigation. Although the station has been repeatedly sanctioned by Australia's version of the FCC, management still signed off on the Kate prank -- which is likely to lead to another investigation.
