Radio station still airing prank call

EVEN after Jacintha Saldanha's death had been confirmed by the King Edward VII Hospital, her voice could still be heard playing over the airwaves of 2Day FM, which had spent all week capitalising on the hoax that now appears to have driven her to suicide.

The Sydney-based radio station has been repeatedly broadcasting the moment Mrs Saldanha was fooled into thinking two DJs were the queen and the Prince of Wales.

As late as 5pm yesterday, more than seven hours after Mrs Saldanha's death, 2Day FM's website was still plugging its royal scoop, which one of the presenters insisted was just a "big fat joke".
