SCA appears at Saldanha inquest

Wednesday 27 March, 2013

Lawyers for Southern Cross Austereo have appeared before a London coroners court in the inquest into the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

The King Edward VII hospital has disputed claims by SCA that the station called the hospital back several times to inform the nurses that the prank call would be broadcast. Even though SCA is an Australian company, with no jurisdiction in a UK court, the company was granted 'interested observer' status to give SCA lawyers a chance to address the court.

British nurse inquest to focus on hospital protocols

Sunday 24 March, 2013

With British police ruling out charges being laid against 2Day-FM and the two announcers who were at the centre of hoax call to the King Edward VII hospital last year, the inquest into the suicide of nurse Jacintha Saldanha which reopens at Westminster Coroner's Court on Tuesday, is likely to focus on the hospital’s role in the incident.

Last Tuesday was ratings day, but Southern Cross Austereo publicists were unusually silent about the results. There were no media releases issued, as a gesture of respect for nurse Jacintha Saldanha, and presumably because anything remotely resembling glee at a good result would likely be taken badly by many people watching the company’s responses after the prank that went so badly wrong.

2Day pair tell their side of the story

Monday 10 December, 2012

“We expected to be hung up on – that was the joke” The two announcers at the centre of the royal prank-turned-tragedy have faced the cameras on both ACA on Nine and Today Tonight on Seven. It remains to be seen how the majority of the public react to their appearance. If early comments on the 2Day-FM facebook page are indicative of a trend it doesn’t look too flash.

SCA board has much to consider as it declares an emergency

Monday 10 December, 2012

The Southern Cross Austereo board of directors held an emergency meeting on Sunday afternoon. The board, led by Chairman Max Moore-Wilton would no doubt have been faced with the difficult task of how to best chart a course through a sea of troubles that has blown up into a perfect storm over the weekend.
